IPL 2017: Virender Sehwag jumps in to resolve Twitter fight between Krunal and Hardik Pandya – Something of a public spat was brewing between Hardik and Krunal Pandya on Twitter. Anyone up for Sunday sleuthing?
Krunal and Hardik Pandya
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.’

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.

Pandya bros and Virender Sehwag are following radio silence since then. This leaves Mumbai Indian fans and Sehwag’s followers scratching their heads and trying their best to suss out the issue.
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.
