For the unversed, Hardik and KL both cricketers started their career for team India in the shortest format of the game in the same year 2016, although at different times. Sharing the dressing room together, both the cricketers became great friends.
Infact, both the cricketers were suspended together from the game after they appeared in a chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’, and got indulged in an ugly controversy later on.
Meanwhile, the titanic clash between India and Pakistan will start at 7:30 PM IST in Dubai and we just can’t for the craziness to begin.
