According to Sharma, he was supposed to book tickets for his parents to Hyderabad but mistakenly booked them a flight to Amritsar. His parents were supposed to go to Hyderabad to see him play against LSG, but it never happened.

“I was talking to my mom-dad. They were scheduled to come for this match, but unfortunately, I booked them a flight for home (from another location). I had to book (air tickets) for Hyderabad, but I booked for Amritsar,” the Punjab-born said to JioCinema.

Following this the video went viral and netizens were soon to react on it.

Here are few comments:

One netizen wrote, “Oh my god (sic) This is not good job abhishekh bhai.”

Other commented, “Wild card entry nii ho skti kya players ke parents ki bhi ?”

“Nice way to keep the parents grounded, literally! (sic),” a twitterati wrote.
