The two times Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Saturday shared two photographs of Kuldeep Yadav and Suryakumar Yadav and it has sent cricket enthusiasts into a frenzy. While the first snap is from Team India’s Mumbai camp, where the Sri Lanka-bound players are serving a two-week quarantine, the second one is an old picture of the duo from KKR’s archive when Suryakumar used to play for the Kolkata-based outfit. “Reunited: Purani Dosti (Old friendship),” KKR wrote in the caption box of the post.

The post soon became the talk of the town as fans started sharing their excitement in the comment section.

While a few cricket enthusiasts were happy to see the two together, other fans rued that KKR let go of Suryakumar after IPL 2015.

“That’s the biggest loss to KKR,” wrote a user.

“That was the biggest profit for SKY. SKY would’ve played his whole life at #6/#7 in KKR, In MI (Mumbai Indians), he got opening/#3 slot and he could show his potential to the world,” wrote another fan on the post.

“Kuldeep Yadav must be in the playing 11 for KKR. You can’t underestimate a player like him,” read another comment.

A follower said that Suryakumar is going to be the next captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders after the mega auction.
