Suryakumar & Rashid’s Bromance Goes Viral On Internet

On Tuesday, social media fans were impressed by their “bromance.” “I’ve missed you” was the message Rashid posted alongside a video of himself working out in the nets.
In response to his post, Suryakumar commented, “And I will miss you,” very quickly. Rashid answered, “I am coming to meet you.”
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, who were also selected as series captains, made a well-publicized return to the Indian T20 team for the three home matches against Afghanistan.
The last T20 match Rohit and Kohli played for India was in November 2022, during the World Cup quarterfinal matchup with England.
The squad needed to abandon its powerplay strategy, as the two veterans and KL Rahul were observed to be playing antiquated cricket, and Hardik Pandya was set to take over as the club’s new T20 captain.
But a lot of inexperience at the top of the order followed Pandya’s injury in the ODI World Cup and, more recently, Suryakumar Yadav’s ligament damage.
