Indian cricket team wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and Indian football team goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu shared a Twitter banter on Sunday, which went viral instantly. Both the players are from the northern side of India and are quite popular among sports fans. Both the young players are world beaters and have taken giant strides and done well for India in their respective sport.
The incident started when Sandhu posted a tweet and tagged Rishabh in it posing a question. The goalkeeper posted a picture of himself waiting for the ball to come his way. In the picture, it could be seen that Sandhu’s hair was flying away. He questioned Pant if that happens when he is behind the stumps and the ball is coming on his way.
“Bhai @RishabhPant17 does your hair also go crazy like this when you are behind the wickets and you see the ball coming?”, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu asked Pant on Twitter. To this, Pant replied by saying that he always makes sure that he is wearing a cap or a helmet while wicketkeeping to ensure that his hair doesn’t fly and go crazy.

Pant further noted that he uses hair gel for the same purpose. Pant wrote in his reply, “Bhai @GurpreetGK that’s why I wear a helmet or cap while keeping, With cameras around everywhere, never underestimate the use of a good hair gel or wax before hitting the field!”

After this reply from Pant, Sandhu went on to say that he will keep the wicketkeeper’s advice in his mind and also added a hashtag, ‘keeper to keeper.’ The 29-year-old Sandhu made his debut for the Indian national football team in 2011 and has played in 38 matches for the national side. He has played for clubs like East Bengal and Bengaluru FC.

On the other hand, Pant has had a few great months playing for the national cricket team. Carrying on from his good form from the Tests series, in the 2nd ODI, the Delhi player smashed 77 runs from just 40 balls. Unfortunately, his knock wasn’t even sufficient for India to win the match.
