The Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Titans IPL 2024 match on Thursday may have been a washout but the camaraderie between players of both sides and their families made it special.

As the rain prevented the players from taking the field, Abhishek took Gill to the stands, where his mother, Manju and sister, Komal, were present. The Sharma family were delighted to see Gill and greeted the GT captain with an ear-to-ear grin. Gill, too, won hearts with his wonderful gesture.

This may have been the first public interaction between Gill and Abhishek's family but the two young cricketers and their families go back a long way. Gill and Abhishek grew up together playing age-group cricket in Punjab and are known as bosom friends. They both made their first-class debut for Punjab in the same season in 2017 and then represented India at the U19 World Cup in 2018 and went on to win the title.

Gill scored the most runs for India in that tournament and life was never the same for him. He was the breakaway star of India's winning campaign but Abhishek's all-round talent didn't go unnoticed.

The left-handed batter, who is more than a handy finger spinner, is delighted to see Gill make a mark in international cricket. "I'm very happy for him. We are good friends," Abhishek had told Hindustan Times in an exclusive chat.

The two also have the same mentor - former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh.

Abhishek and Gill's superb IPL show

Abhishek and Gill have had decent runs in this IPL. Gill's GT may have failed to make it to the playoffs, but he ended the season with 426 runs in 12 matches, an average of 38 scored at a strike rate of 147. The pundits also praised his captaincy skills in his maiden season.

Abhishek, on the other hand, is in the middle of his best season in the IPL. Along with opening partner Travis Head, he has given SRH never-before-seen explosive starts in the history of IPL. The left-hander has an aggregate of 401 runs in 12 innings at a strike rate of 205.6 and has already blasted 35 sixes – the most for any batter in the tournament.
