Team India’s superstar all rounder Hardik Pandya was a little puzzled on how to celebrate his brother and teammate Krunal Pandya’s birthday. Due to the novel Coronavirus outbreak, not only the cricketers are off duty, but they cannot risk themselves into going out. Then you might be wondering about how did Hardik manage a cake for his brother’s birthday? Well, he just got a ‘zero calorie cake’.
Actually, there was no cake. Due to the lock down and strict restrictions on not going out, even the Indian cricket team members are self isolating in their own homes. But Hardik had the wittiest idea of getting Krunal a cake for his 29th birthday.
Pandya tweeted a photo on midnight, where he was seen giving Krunal an imaginary piece of cake, which he also hilariously termed as a zero calorie cake, with the caption: “Happy birthday bhai ❤️ We’re looking after each other in isolation so here’s my zero calorie cake gift for you 😜 Love you loads 😘 @krunalpandya24″

The hilarious post soon got the attention of the Twitterati, as tons of wishes poured in from the followers.
Not a regular member of the team like his younger brother, Krunal’s international appearances for the Men in Blue has been limited to only T20 internationals. Since his debut against West Indies in 2018, Krunal has eanred 11 caps for India.
Both Hardik and Krunal play for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League, and were preparing to team up against Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2020 opener watch which was supposed to be on 29th March.
However, due to the virus outbreak, the 13th season of the blockbuster Indian cricket tournament has been pushed back to 15th April, and the Pandya brothers will have to wait for a couple of weeks more before they can show off their prowess together on the 22 yards.
