That Hardik Pandya loves to pull his teammates’ legs is not a secret anymore. Well, his latest victim is none other than India youngster Shubman Gill. It all started when Gill took to Instagram to post a picture of his newly bought Range Rover. The right-handed batsman recently turned up for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League and impressed.
He scored 296 runs in 14 matches with a top-score of 76. The impressive performance helped him win the award for the emerging player of the tournament. And after the tournament ended, Gill pampered himself with the expensive four wheeler.
“Thalle mere Range akh baaz naalo tezz!” wrote Gill as he posted a picture of himself standing beside his new ride.
This is when it all started. Sara Tendulkar, daughter of former India batsman Sachin Tendulkar, congratulated Gill for the new vehicle.
“Congratulations,” wrote Sara Tendulkar followed by a heart emoji. Gill was quick to reply to the message as he thanked Sara for her message and he too ended his message with a heart sign.
“Thanks a lot,” wrote Gill while tagging Sara Tendulkar.
This is when Hardik Pandya jumped in to tease Gill. While the fans were busy wondering whether Sara and Gill are more than just friends, Pandya added fuel to the fire with his message. Pandya teasingly welcomed Gill on behalf of Sara, writing:
“Most welcome from her.”
