India is known as the hub of cricket. Even though it has originated in England, it is played more in India. A cricket match is like a festival in India. Thousands of people gather in the stadium to cheer for the team. Even for IPL, hundreds of fans gather in the stadium to cheer for their favourite team and enjoys viewership of millions through digital platforms. In our country, win and records of other cricket teams are also celebrated and appreciated equally.
Recently, the Indian cricket team reached UK for a two-match T20I series against Ireland starting Wednesday.
While flying to the place earlier, all-rounder Hardik Pandya decided to turn anchor mid-flight and decided to interview his teammates. The video shows Pandya, along with Yuzvendra Chahal holding a mic and walking around the plane to speak to the members of the squad.
The 27-year old starts with interviewing skipper Virat Kohli and asks him the atmosphere within the team before the start of the series. In his reply, Kohli said that he is looking forward to having a good series against both Ireland and England. Both on them move on to have a small interaction with seamer Umesh Yadav, chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, and Manish Pandey. The duo then moved around to spot in Dinesh Karthik’s seat, who was seen working on his laptop. The wicketkeeper-batsman asked the reason for the video before he was cut short by KL Rahul, who said that he is excited for his first trip to England.
Have a look at the post.
When both of them moved to interview Rohit Sharma, the Hitman asked Chahal to get a deodorant as he was sweating too much. The trio shared a laugh, and then Pandya moved on to speak to MS Dhoni.
As Pandya said, "Hi, Mahi Bhai", the wicketkeeper-batsman ignored him, continued to stare at his screen and offered him a chip from his table. An embarassed Pandya said, "Bye, Mahi Bhai" and walked off.
India will play two T20Is against Ireland on June 27 and June 29, followed by a three-T20I, three ODIs and five Tests series against England starting from July 3.
