India Vs Namibia Team India Sports Black Armbands Against Namibia To Pay Tribute To Dronacharya Awardee Shri Tarak Sinha


New Delhi: Virat Kohli, playing his last game as team India’s T20I skipper, won the toss and decided to bowl first against minnows Namibia in their final match of the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday.

Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to Twitter to share a picture of Indian cricketers supporting black armbands for today’s game against Namibia. The tweet by BCCI revealed that team India players were wearing black armbands to pay their tributes to Dronacharya Awardee Shri Tarak Sinha, who passed away on Saturday.

“#TeamIndia is wearing black armbands today to pay their tributes to Dronacharya Awardee and widely respected coach Shri Tarak Sinha, who sadly passed away on Saturday,” BCCI tweeted.

After winning the toss, skipper Virat Kohli said, “We’ll bowl first. The tosses have been a big factor, and when I’ve won a couple we’ll do what we wanted to do from the start.”

On the other hand, Namibia skipper Gerhard Erasmus said, “It’s a good opportunity to go up against arguably the world’s best side, and for our batsmen to go up against that bowling line-up of theirs. It was a big thing to get through the group stages.”
