Cricket is nothing short of a religion in India, and the lengths fans will go to meet their idols are incredible.

This is just a hint of what cricket means to Indian fans.
Navaldeep Singh had the best start to his 2021 season. Navaldeep was at the same Melbourne restaurant where some Indian players decided to eat after the Boxing Day Test. According to Navaldeep, he saw Rohit Sharma, Navdeep Saini, Rishabh Pant, and Shubhman Gill while they were sitting right next to him at the table.
He couldn’t contain his excitement and tweeted about the incident, “mere saamne waale table par gill pant sharma saini” (Shubhman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Navdeep Saini, and Rishabh Pant are sitting on the table in front of me)

Navaldeep was so excited that he ordered something to eat even though he wasn’t hungry. He ordered the food, so he could just sit and watch his favorite players.

Indian Fan paid bill of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Gill and Saini
On January 1, 2021, Navaldeep Singh, an Indian cricket fan, noticed Rohit Sharma, Navdeep Saini, Rishabh Pant, and Shubman Gill sitting next to him at a restaurant in Melbourne. The fan paid their AUD 118.69 (INR 6683) bill and posted a video of the cricketers enjoying a relaxing day.
They are not aware but i have paid there table bill 🙂 . Least i can do for my superstars 🤗 pic.twitter.com/roZgQyNBDX— Navaldeep Singh (@NavalGeekSingh) January 1, 2021
When the players were informed that their bill was paid by someone else, a fan. Rohit Sharma asked him to take the money back as it doesn’t look nice. But Navaldeep declined and said no sir it’s on me, and while they were leaving Pant said “Thank you bhabhi ji for the lunch.”

However, when the issue arose, it sparked a lot of controversies because the players were supposed to be in a safe bio bubble due to the COVID-19 situation. When Navaldeep Singh tweeted that Rishabh Pant hugged him, it sparked outrage, citing COVID-19 protocols.
But Navaldeep wrote in his other tweet that his last tweet was only outside of excitement. His tweet read “Clarification – Pant never hugged me it was all said in excitement we maintained social distance all through:) Apologies for miscommunication @BCCI @CricketAus @dailytelegraph,”
