Ever since the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced India’s squad for the upcoming tour of Australia, questions over Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant’s fitness have been raised. Although Pant got picked in the Test team, his fitness and form are under a lot of questions. On the other hand, Sharma has surprisingly not being named in any squad.
Meanwhile, Sharma has been out of MI’s playing XI since the last few games owing to a hamstring injury. Similarly, Pant also missed some of the IPL matches due to a hamstring injury.
The two Indian cricket stars had a conversation after Mumbai Indian’s recent fixture with Delhi Capitals. Later, MI’s Twitter account shared a candid picture from their conversation, expressing excitement for their six-hitting competition.
Soon after, Yuvraj Singh took a hilarious dig at Sharma and Pant’s fitness. He wrote, “Or a competition of fat percent on their cheeks @ritssajdeh” He further added, “It’s like ro is saying to pant tere gaal jyada Motey hain ya mere ?”
Yuvraj’s comment came at a time when both the cricketers are facing fitness issues.
