New Delhi: Team India had a dismal start to their T20 World Cup campaign. The shambolic 10-wicket loss against arch-rivals Pakistan has shaken the morale of the players. Tonight, Virat Kohli & Co, will take on New Zealand in a must-win match at Dubai International cricket stadium.
Ahead of the high-octane clash, Indian players are trying to keep themselves cool by spending some fun time with their loved ones. On the occasion of Halloween, many Indian players who are accompanied by their wives organised an in-house celebration for their kids as if they were attending someone’s birthday party.
From the very same celebration, a video of Ishan Kishan and Shardul Thakur enacting as a couple while getting themselves indulged in a ballroom dance routine, has gone viral on social media.
In another video, India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant can be seen distributing candy to children.
Talking about the match, many experts have predicted that Shardul Thakur might be picked in India’s playing XI in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the match against New Zealand. However, in-form Ishan Kishan might have to wait a little longer to make his World Cup debut.
India and New Zealand have clashed against each other twice in the T20 World Cup and both times, India have lost against the mighty Kiwis. If India defeats New Zealand tonight, then this will be their first win over New Zealand in an ICC event in the past 18 years.
Last time India defeated New Zealand in an ICC event was during the 2003 World Cup under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy. Also, India’s journey of making it to the semi-finals will become easier.
