During the first ODI match between Sri Lanka and India (SL vs IND 1st ODI), such a sight has been seen which is being discussed a lot. Fans are commenting fiercely on social media. It happened that during the live match Krunal Pandya Batsman Charit hugged Aslanka. In fact, on the second ball of the 22nd over, batsman Dhananjay de Silva hit a straight shot on the ball of Krunal which went to the bowler. Bowler Krunal, while trying to catch the ball, collided with non-strike batsman Charit Aslanka, after which Krunal showed a big heart and hugged the batsman. Fans are quite happy with this behavior of Krunal. There is talk about Krunal’s style on social media. Fans are fiercely sharing memes and telling it the effect of Rahul Dravid’s company. People believe that the change in Krunal’s behavior has come because of Rahul Dravid.
Upholding the Spirit of Cricket! 😌
Lovely gesture by Krunal 👏🏽

In the first ODI against India, Sri Lanka won the toss and decided to bat first. Kulcha is back in India’s playing XI. After 2 years, Kuldeep and Yuzvendra Chahal are playing one-day matches together. The last time both the bowlers were seen playing together was during the 2019 World Cup.

In the first ODI against Sri Lanka, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav made their ODI debuts. Apart from this, Ishan is only the second cricketer from India who has made a unique coincidence of debuting in ODIs on his birthday.
