India's cricketers Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya have come one-on-one in a gym face-off for BCCI's latest video. The Pandya brothers are currently on a Sri Lanka tour for the limited-overs series. 

India's strength and conditioning coach, Anand Date took the fans through to the challenge. There were three challenges in the gym and the Pandya brothers gave their best to win at least two of them.

The first challenge between Hardik and Krunal was the 'wall squat hold' challenge and the latter won it. After Krunal went 1-0 up in the challenge, Hardik had to win the next challenge to stay alive in the competition.

Hardik gave his best in the second challenge, which was the 'glute bridge' challenge. He eventually won it after Krunal gave up early. The third challenge, 'split squat hold' saw both the brothers giving each other a strong competition. Eventually, they mutually decided to share the last win. 

"This may look easy, but it's NOT! ❌ Care to try one of these challenges at home? ???? The Pandya brothers - @hardikpandya7 & @krunalpandya24 - face off in a quick gym challenge," wrote BCCI while sharing the video.

The ODI series between India and Sri Lanka, which was scheduled to start on July 13, will now begin on July 18, BCCI secretary Jay Shah had confirmed after COVID-19 cases in the home team's camp.
