Kolkata Knight Riders is going pretty well in the IPL 2022 as it is sitting on the second spot with 3 wins out of 5 matches it has played. In fact, the team would have obtained the top spot if it had won its last match which was against Delhi Capitals.
The match between KKR and DC was played on April 10 at Brabourne Stadium and in this regard, a video went viral which featured KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer and DC cricketer Shardul Thakur. The video was posted by the Kolkata franchise and both the cricketers had a friendly banter in which they challenged each other to perform better at the Brabourne Stadium.
The video started with Shreyas Iyer calling Shardul ‘Lord’ and saying that he is looking good in the DC camp. In reply, Shardul tells Shreyas that he is also shining, his face is shining and then he asks whether it is because of the KKR jersey.
Further, Shreyas tells Shardul that he should get ready to see one more sample in Brabourne as he already knows his record over there. In response, Shardul makes a witty remark by asking him whether he is acting smart just because he is from Mumbai (“Mumbai se hai toh shaana ban raha hai kya?”). They further talked about the times when they faced each other in nets.
Here is the video which KKR posted with the caption, “Friendly banter or sledging? We’ll leave it to you to decide!”
