KL Rahul revealed that he misses Hardik Pandya in the Indian squad after India's 67-run victory against West Indies at Wankhede that helped them to clinch the series 2-1 on Wednesday.

BCCI uploaded a video on their Twitter account where KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya are seen having conversations. The former said, "We are waiting for you to come back quickly, the dressing room feels empty without you at least for me, had don't know about the rest."

Hardik replied "They (other teammates) are also feeling the same," with a broad smile.

KL Rahul smashed 91 off 56 balls to lead India to a imposing total of 240/3, he was also awarded as the man of the match for his heroics with the bat.

Last year the duo had hit the headlines after their sexist comments in a popular talk show where the clips went viral leading to both player's suspension from the ODI series against Australia.

Despite the incident, there wasn't a falling out.

After that incident, things have been very good between two of them, fans will be excited to see both of them bat together once Hardik Pandya is back from injury.

Pandya recently had to undergo back surgery in October at London. The Mumbai lad is raring to go and promises to come back strongly.
