Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya have never had a good relationship. A couple of months ago, there was a huge feud between the two players who used to play for the same domestic cricket team Baroda. Reportedly, Krunal Pandya, who was the captain of the team at that time, had talked to his team member Deepak Hooda in a very demeaning manner and according to sources, he had even abused him very badly. Deepak Hooda thus complained about this to the authorities but it ended up concluding Deepak’s journey with the Baroda domestic cricket team. However, things between the two players finally seem to be alright as they were seen hugging on the field during today’s clash between Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans.
Lucknow Super Giants bought both Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda for 8.25 Crores and 5.75 Crores respectively in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction and ever since then, fans wondered how the two players will play together as they have a very negative history together. It was a test of the professionalism of the two players and as it turned out, both the players behaved very professionally at least in the first match and what won the hearts of the fans was that they shook hands and hugged out for celebrating the fall of Shubman Gill’s wicket.
The video of the same was posted on social media by a user and it got viral in no time. Fans are loving the fact that the two players have finally been able to put aside their differences for their new franchise.
Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya both gave a terrific performance in today’s match. Deepak Hooda was the lone warrior of LSG scoring 55 off 41 and he also took one wicket today. On the other hand, Hardik Pandya scored 21 off 13 with the bat and he also picked up 1 wicket.
