With 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the twitter has already begun. Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad already got involved in a duel. However, this time, it is on social media and the battle was a fire with both the franchises coming up with interesting replies. Soon after, defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) also chipped in. Meanwhile, it all ended with the intervention from Hardik Pandya and Gaurav Kapur.
Initially, it all started with India all-rounder Hardik Pandya who posted a picture with Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard. Meanwhile, their franchise, Mumbai Indians asked the fans to show any other all-rounders trio like them.
During the course, the runner-up of IPL 2018, Sunrisers Hyderabad replied with a picture of Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Nabi, and Rashid Khan. Further, they added saying, ‘Wait is finished.’
In reply, Mumbai Indians came up with the pictures of their three trophies and quoted the wait continues. The response by Mumbai Indians seems like an indirect dig at Hyderabad, as they got only one cup in their bag.
Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya entered into the banter and added saying ‘Thug Life’ from Mumbai Indians. During the course, Gaurav Kapur, who enjoyed the banter quoted ”Hahaha. Shots fired. Top banter guys.”
Here is the banter:
