The mystery that had cricket fans puzzled for years has finally been solved! It all started with a photograph taken during the 2019 One Day World Cup in England, featuring some of India's cricketing stars like Rishabh Pant, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mayank Agarwal. The photo, originally shared by Hardik Pandya, seemed innocent enough, but it soon became the centre of a hilarious debate: Whose hand was resting on Rishabh Pant's shoulder?

Hardik Pandya had cheekily captioned the photo as a "Boys' Day Out," adding an extra layer of intrigue. This single picture turned into an internet sensation, inspiring memes and endless confusion. Everyone had a theory about the mysterious hand! Some thought it must be Mayank Agarwal's hand due to its remarkable reach, while others speculated that someone might be hiding behind Rishabh Pant. There were even wild guesses that it could belong to Rishabh's girlfriend, though there was no evidence to support that claim.
