Hardik and Krunal – the Pandya brothers – who play together for Mumbai Indians (MI) seems to have developed some sort of differences between them. Some tension between the duo was sensed in the tweets exchanged by them today morning.
Hardik, the younger one between the two, posted a tweet a few hours ago which read, “Sometimes in life, people closest to you end up disappointing you the most. Not cool, bro!”

Krunal responded quickly and urged his brother to bury the issues. He replied, “.@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!”

It is still unclear whether what transpired between the two. Both the brothers played together in the final league game last night in which Mumbai Indians’ beat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). They have generally appeared to be very friendly toward each other. This perhaps is the first time the duo have come out with some problems between them. Let’s hope they both talk about it and settle down the issue.
But, before anyone could intervene, an attempt to settled down the misunderstanding has already being made by Virender Sehwag who tweeted: “Lagta ha i ,”Baap Bada Na Bhaiyya, Sabse Bada Rupaiyya” – is gaane ko jyada hi seriously le liya .Lado mat yaar !”

Hardik Pandya was one of the architects of the win. While he did not get any opportunity to contribute with the bat, Pandya, who bowlers medium pacers, did the trick with the ball, snapping two crucial wickets at an important juncture at the cost of just 22 runs.
His victims of the night included Manish Pandey and Colin de Grandhomme. Both the batsmen threatened to nail down the total of 174 set by Mumbai Indians batting first. Krunal also made his contribution, bowling 2 overs while giving away just 14 runs and has been contributing to his best this season.
With this win, Mumbai Indians qualified for the playoffs as the table toppers. The side looks as firm favourites to win the trophy this season having won. Therefore any, problem among the players would affect the rhythm of the team. The fans also weren’t too amused to see them fight.
