Not only them, but Punjab Kings teammates Arshdeep Singh and Nathan Ellis also exchanged jerseys.

It's pretty uncommon to see cricketers exchange shirts after a game as a sign of camaraderie and appreciation for each other's efforts on the field.

The action exemplifies sportsmanship. The jerseys exchanged serve as permanent souvenirs of the games played and the friendships forged across the competitive difference. Cricketers exchanging jerseys show their mutual respect and appreciation for one another. It's a symbolic gesture that emphasizes the shared experiences and respect that transcend the game's competitive aspect.
