GT vs LSG: Watch - Deepak Hooda Hugs Krunal Pandya To Celebrate Shubman Gill's Wicket After Taking His Catch

Gujarat Titans (GT) teammates Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya set aside their differences to celebrate the dismissal of Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) opener, Shubman Gill, during their opening game in the IPL 2022 season.

The duo has had their differences in the past with Krunal allegedly abusing Hooda during their stint with the Baroda domestic team in the Ranji Trophy. It also led to Hooda exiting the team and joining Rajasthan.

However, all of it was kept at bay and the beauty of the IPL was on full display on Monday. Chasing the target of 159 at the Wankhede Stadium, Gill and Matthew Wade opened the innings for LSG.

The former was dismissed very early by Sri Lankan pacer, Dushmantha Chameera. Gill tried to slash hard at a short length delivery but only managed a top-edge that was consumed by Hooda.

Krunal and Hooda, who were the fielders attempting to catch the ball, jumped in joy and hugged as LSG celebrated the wicket. As expected, the moment was enjoyed by the fans on social media.

In the IPL 2022 mega auction, there were several memes on social media after Krunal and Hooda were bought by the same team. However, LSG mentor Gautam Gambhir played down the moment and stated that they are both professionals playing at the highest level of the game.
