Cricketers are known for sharing a strong bond with teammates both on and off the field, though the bond becomes even more special when the two are related with blood.

Pinch-hitting brothers Krunal and Hardik Pandya too share such an emotional bond, as it was evident on Wednesday when the former flooded younger brother’s wall with wishes on his 24th birthday.

In a series of four tweets, Krunal described the special equation he shares with brother Hardik.


Krunal expressed how being elder he gets angry at Hardik many times, but he can’t imagine life without his younger brother.

“You know what bro, I may get mad at you, may get angry on you sometimes too but reality is I can’t stay without you! It’s you, who inspire me and give me strength. I am really happy the way you have achieved everything.”

So far, Hardik has played 50 international matches for India, while Krunal still awaits a national call-up. “I know it’s just the beginning for you and us! Just wanna tell you that I will always be there for you and that I love u so much,” he said.

In the end, Krunal posted a picture with Hardik from a match where the two played for Mumbai Indians in an IPL match. “Happy birthday my brother. God bless you. Keep shinning,” he captioned the image.
