Pandya brothers captaining against each other for the first time in IPL
Know when and where has this happened before in T20 cricket?
New Delhi. The 51st match of IPL 2023 is special for two reasons. The first is that the two teams that debuted last year ie Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans are face to face in Ahmedabad and the second is that in this match Pandya Brothers are face to face as captains. That is, there is a clash between the teams of Hardik and Krunal Pandya. This is happening for the first time in the history of IPL, when two real brothers will captain against each other.
The interesting thing is that Lucknow Super Giants have never defeated Gujarat Titans in IPL. Krunal will take charge of the Lucknow team for the first time against Gujarat Titans. Now it will be a matter to be seen whether Bade Mian i.e. Krunal can break this chain against Chhote Mian Hardik’s team or not. However, it is a matter of pride for both.
One Pandya will definitely win: Hardik
After the toss in the match, Hardik Pandya said, “It is a big and emotional day for the family. Had our father been there today, he would have been feeling proud. This is happening for the first time in IPL. I have no words, but the family must be feeling proud. One of the two Pandyas will win.
