Hardik and Krunal Pandya are two emerging stars of Mumbai Indians. Hardik more so, since he is on his way to becoming a mainstay of Indian squad after being included for upcoming Champions Trophy. But something happened on Sunday that has left the fans puzzled.
Pandya brothers often engage in Twitter banter as digital age millennial siblings do. But on Sunday, Hardik Pandya’s ambiguous tweet addressing ‘Bro’ caught Virender Sehwag’s eyes.
Sometimes in life, people closest to you end up disappointing you the most. Not cool, bro!

The tweet is followed by a response from Baroda all-rounder’s elder brother and MI teammate Krunal. Elder Pandya reminds his brother that there is a reason he is ‘bade bhaiyya.’
.@hardikpandya7, this shouldn't have happened in the first place. I am bade bhaiyya for a reason. Let's not make this a big issue!

Krunal clearly doesn’t seem interested in making a big deal out of whatever happened between brothers. But Kings XI Punjab’s mentor and Twitter master Virender Sehwag spotted the conversation and in his unique style parted some wisdom towards the young blood of Indian cricket scenario.

On a different note, the win was a big plus point for the Mumbai Indians as they will now get two shots at the final as a result of finishing at the top of the ladder. Hardik Pandya was right on the money with the ball by giving away just 22 runs from his 4 overs and picking up two wickets.
It is not yet clear what happened between the Pandya brothers but we can be sure of the fact that something is wrong with them. Mumbai Indians will certainly hope that the matter gets solved immediately as both the players are extremely crucial for the team with the playoff stages just about to kick off.
In the meantime, after defeating Kolkata Knight Riders at their home ground, Mumbai Indians are now gearing up for first play-off match to be played on May 16.
