Veteran Indian wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel and former Australian cricketer Dean Jones have been at loggerheads with each other for quite a while now. It all started when Jones questioned the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) franchise for retaining Parthiv Patel for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) season. Since then, the two have been leaving no chance of poking fun at each other.

During the IPL 2020 trading window, RCB retained Parthiv Patel for ₹1.7 crore.

While RCB were slated to commence their IPL 2020 campaign with a match against Kolkata Knight Riders on March 31, the fans of the franchise may have to wait a while longer to see their favourite stars in action.
