Its a known fact that Gill fields for India, in test matches at short leg position. The duo of Pant and Ashwin were, playfully mocking their team mate Gill.
The trio of Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane, play for Delhi Capitals. On the other hand, Shubhman Gill plays for Kolkata Knight Riders. However, the camaraderie which the players share while playing for India, was there to see.
