New Delhi: The upcoming season of Indian Premier League (IPL) will witness for the first time that both Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya will lock horn against each other.

This will happen because the Pandya brothers are in two different teams. The all-rounder Hardik will lead Gujarat Titans in their debut campaign, whereas Krunal will be seen in action for Lucknow Super Giants in the T20 tournament.

Taking to the Instagram, Hardik reacted over this development and wrote, ''See you on the other side my bro.''
