A video of Hardik Pandya hugging Virat Kohli after a wicket dismissal during India’s T20 World Cup win over Ireland went viral.

A heartwarming moment between Indian cricket stars Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli during their T20 World Cup opener against Ireland has melted hearts online. The brief exchange, captured on video, has gone viral, offering a glimpse into the strong team spirit within the Indian camp.

Following Arshdeep Singh’s dismissal of Irish skipper Paul Stirling in the third over, Pandya is seen approaching Kohli for a celebratory hug. The two share a warm embrace, followed by smiles and laughter, a scene that was cherished by the fans. Watch the video below:

Pandya faced criticism for his performance and team switch during IPL 2024, while Kohli’s batting form has been a cause for concern. However, the T20 World Cup has seen a resurgence for Pandya. Despite a disappointing IPL season upon his return to the Mumbai Indians, he slammed a vital 40 off 23 balls in the warm-up game against Bangladesh. This impressive display was followed by a three-wicket haul against Ireland, showcasing his all-round capabilities.

On a challenging New York pitch with uneven bounce, Pandya’s bowling form has proven to be a valuable asset for Team India. His ability to adapt his strategies and contribute with the ball provides valuable depth to the bowling attack, alongside the established pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh.

India dominated the match against Ireland, bowling them out for a mere 97 runs. The pace attack spearheaded by Pandya, Bumrah, and Singh proved too much for the Irish batters, with Mohammad Siraj chipping in with a wicket as well.

India is now gearing up for the marquee clash against Pakistan on June 9th after securing a convincing victory against Ireland in their T20 World Cup opener.
