Hardik Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal indulge in some social media banter. 

Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya has been hard at work to regain fitness since he was ruled out of the limited overs series against Australia. And we know that because, well, social media.

After making a successful return to international cricket in New Zealand since being temporarily suspended for his controversial comments on TV chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’, the 25-year-old all-rounder was diagnosed with “lower back stiffness”.

Considering how important Pandya is in India’s scheme of things for the fast-approaching ICC World Cup 2019, he was rested from India team duties, giving him plenty of time to slog in the gym.


When Pandya posted shirtless updates of him working out, teammate Yuzvendra Chahal commented saying “Bro don’t you have a clothing sponsor? If not, please call Nike”.

And since Hardik isn’t one to keep quiet, he replied saying, “bro you are a star. I have @dfy_india, they are amazing. And if you need any sponsor @dfy_india is there”.

After losing the T20I series 0-2, India are currently playing five One Day Internationals against Australia – their last international assignment before the World Cup starting 30 May. Chahal featured in both the T20 Internationals, but has been sitting on the sidelines during the one-dayers. With a 2-0 lead in the series, India next play Australia in the third ODI on Friday, 8 March at Ranchi.
