Team India players have been sweating profusely on the field before the limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka since July 18. Shikhar Dhawan, the Indian opener selected as the captain of the team for the tour, leaves no stone unturned to inspire players on and off the field. Dhawan was having fun with his Delhi Capitals teammate Prithvi Shah on Thursday. Dhawan, popularly known as ‘Gabbar’, shared a video on his Instagram, in which he plays the flute. This time, Shah put on a black t-shirt and a black hat on his back, singing ‘Ye Sham Mastani, Madhosh Kiye Zaye’ to a tune.
Dhawan wrote, titled ‘Thursday tunes, Prithvi Shah, our home superstar singer’. He tagged this post to Shaw. In the video, Prithvi is singing the song ‘Ye Sham Mastani, Madhosh Ke Jayay …’ from ‘Katy Pantag’ to her partner Dhawan’s flute tune.
The Indian team is continuing its training under Dhawan’s leadership. Team players participated for the first time under the lights during Thursday evening’s practice session. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has posted a photo on social media showing the team players practicing under the lights. BCCI captioned the photo with the caption, ‘Start our first practice session under lights. Team India. India vs Sri Lanka.
In the photo, Rahul Dravid, the team’s head coach for the tour of Sri Lanka, is seen interacting with the players. Dravid has been coached by the team for this tour. At the same time, it was Dhawan’s first trip abroad as a hero.
