With six wins in the tournament, Mumbai Indians are now at the fourth position in the points table.
What caught the attention of the cameras post the match was a sweet gesture which involved two leading Indian cricketers
After this, Hardik asked him for the Kings XI Punjab jersey and he got his Mumbai Indians jersey from his body and gave them to him. The motive behind this was clear, the motive of the heart was clear. In fact, Hardik wanted to tell that Mumbai certainly won the match, but its real hero is KL Rahul.
The fans were extremely pleased with their gesture. Everyone lauded their sportsmanship. Both the players have been Indian teammates. They determined that at the end of it, it was a game and both continue to be great friends. While some also took this opportunity to make some jokes, others appreciated the trend.
Exchanging jerseys is not a familiar sight in cricket. With Rahul and Hardik Pandya doing it on the ground, it shows the camaraderie between them and the level of respect for each other.
