The last few months have been pretty tough for both KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya. From getting injured to getting suspended for appearing on TV show ‘Koffee With Karan’, time has not been very kind to them.
But both of them seem to have put those things behind them, and are having a stellar season in the Indian Premier League with their respective teams. While Hardik has been smashing the ball all around, Rahul too, seems to have found his lost form.
And in the midst of the IPL season, KL Rahul – who turns 27 on Thursday, 18 April – celebrated with friends and teammates including Pandya.
Hardik Pandya posted a picture of him and Rahul on Instagram wishing him a happy birthday, and wrote, ‘Brothers for life !!!!! No matter what!!! Love u bro @rahulkl happy birthday. Let’s make it our year’.
Instagram users were quick to see the funny side of it, asking them out for a ‘Koffee’ and had a lot of 'Coffee Jokes’ for them.
Here are a few.
Some users also appreciated the bond they shared and were full of praise for the birthday boy.
One user wrote- “What ever happen to them..in there past....best friends never get separate from.each other they were with each other at hard time......they are together in world cup... bring it to India with all others.”
Appreciating the kind of determination and mental strength shown by KL Rahul in adverse conditions, one user wrote - “ Everybody's searching for a hero. You are a shining example of strength under adverse conditions and graciousness under uplifting situations. You are a true hero and I hope that you will have a birthday celebration fit for a hero on this special day. Happy birthday champ, idol, inspiration. May you smash all those hundreds and grab on to all the opportunities life presents to you.”
Some of the users also asked them win the World Cup and bring it back to India. They also pointed out that if both of them fire together, India will definitely win the World Cup.
With these coffee jokes not seeming to go away any time soon, even Rahul and Pandya may start seeing a funny side to it in the times to come.
With the World Cup just a few weeks away, both KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya will be hoping to be at their very best. Till then, they have a job to do for their respective IPL franchises.
