Their rapport was once again evident in the pre-match antics that occurred before their recent clash. The unconventional greeting, an amusing spectacle for fans and fellow players alike, shows a side of these professional athletes often unseen during competitive matches.
Unfortunate day for Ishan Kishan due to injury
