On Thursday the BCCI has announced the Indian team for the three-match DI and T20I series at home against India against the West Indies. In the squad, the name of Deepak Hooda surprised a lot of fans and experts. Hardly anyone would have thought that Deepak would be selected in the team for the home series against West Indies. But skipper Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid seem to have shown confidence in the youngster.
Last year, Deepak Hooda had left the Baroda team after a tussle as he had alleged that skipper, Krunal Pandya had threatened to ruin his career by abusing him. After the selection of Deepak Hooda in Team India, there were 10 tweets one after the other from Krunal Pandya on his official Twitter account. On this, the fans also did not miss the chance to take a dig at Krunal and wrote that perhaps his mind wandered due to the selection of Deepak Hooda and it felt like he drunk tweeted.
However, many fans are also speculating after seeing the series of tweets from Krunal Pandya that his Twitter account has been hacked. Because in the tweets that have been made from Krunal’s account, it has also been written to buy bitcoin. However, till now no clarification has come from Krunal Pandya. In such a situation, the fans got a chance to take a jibe at the cricketer.
