Watch as Hardik Pandya reprimands Murali Kartik for his egregious tossing error. A viral reaction occurs
In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya made history by becoming the first siblings to captain rival teams. The accomplishment was made possible by Hardik's leadership of the defending champion Gujarat Titans and Krunal's replacement of the injured KL Rahul as captain of the Lucknow Super Giants. As Hardik prevented TV host Murali Kartik from making a serious error, the situation turned comical. Although the coin came up heads when Krunal called it, Kartik miscalled it as tails. The error was immediately corrected as both brothers were left in splits.
