The months of October-November are often the most celebrated ones in India with a festive atmosphere throughout the country. However, this year, the entertainment and fun has been doubled with a cricket fest also going on in UAE. Team India are currently taking part in the ongoing T20 World Cup and are on their pursuit of winning first-ever ICC trophy since 2013. But what are the cricketers doing apart from training for the matches? The answers of the same were revealed on Saturday.
After India’s loss to Pakistan on October 24, India got a one week break before their next game. While the players sweated it out in nets ahead of the clash against New Zealand, they also got some time to spend with their families who are with the players in bio-bubble. Although ‘Diwali’ is still a few days away, they decided to celebrate Halloween on Saturday.
Halloween time for Kohli and Co.
Although Halloween is celebrated on October 31, India will be playing an important match against New Zealand on Sunday. This is why the players, along with their wives and kids, took the opportunity to enjoy it a day prior.
Anushka Sharma shared the photos of the celebration on her Instagram Story where the kids of all players could be seen as she wrote in the caption, “Happy Halloween from this cute bunch.” There was a special focus on Ishan Kishan, who was hilariously posing with the children seemingly looking one among them only.
In another photo shared by her, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma could also be seen making an appearance with their wives and kids, who were in their Halloween attire.
Shardul and Kishan produce a dance performance
In another post shared by Ravichandran Ashwin’s wife Prithi Narayan, the trio of Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav could be seen spending some time with the kids and playing with them. There was no doubt that the children had a great day in Dubai with the players.
Among the young ones, some players also showed their fun side as Ishan Kishan and Shardul Thakur produced a hilarious dance performance while Kohli and Co. laughed their hearts out.
It was indeed brilliant to see Indian players having some relaxed and stress-free time with their families as they would now be raring to go on the field when they face the Kiwis on Sunday in a crucial encounter.
