Among the several things the Indian Premier League (IPL) has done is given young Indian uncapped cricketers access to some of the best players from around the world. They get a chance to hang out with them, talk to them, understand how they think as well as pick up their cricketing routine and habits. One among such bonds is that between the Pandya brothers Hardik and Krunal and West Indian Kieron Pollard who play for the Mumbai Indians.
Krunal Pandya was recently in London and he posted a picture with Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn who he seems to have bumped into. Krunal with the image wrote a rather funny caption calling him a doppelgänger. “Doppelgänger Standing (from left): Ajay Devgn and Krunal Pandya????????????”

He got a wild reaction on the post with over 61k likes and thousands of comments in just over a day. However, the one comment that stands out is that from Pollard. He took a sort of dig that could actually cause a lot of damage unless they share a really special kind of friendship where the roast can go to any extent.
Here is their banter

Krunal replied to it with emoji’s of sealed mouth and took it in a sporty manner.
As far as his cricket is concerned the elder Pandya brother reached a new high in his career when he was called up in the Indian T20I squad. The left-arm spinner who also bats well was a part of the India A squad that was in England for the List A series.
He did well there and when Team India’s Washington Sundar sustained an injury in Ireland that ruled him out of the T20I series in England, Pandya was called in as a replacement. Though he didn’t break into the XI, being in that dressing room would’ve given him a lot of confidence.
