Shubman Gil and Ishan Kidhan have a strong bond. They often pull each other’s leg, engage in banter as well as make hilarious videos. They shared a room during their international duty. Their recent antics on the field have left internet users in splits.
The bromance between Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans was evident in a big way as the two openers hugged each other in an unconventional manner. Videos and screenshots went viral quickly on microblogging.
Gill’s third Indian Premier League (IPL) century was an unforgettable day for Kishan, who missed the opportunity to bat because of an eye injury that he sustained during the first innings due to a collision he had with his teammate Chris Jordan.
