IND vs ENG: Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli give away business class for team pacers
The Indian cricket team is very confident after winning 4 out of 5 matches. The team looks invincible at the moment as they have been quite exceptional in all 3 divisions of the game. Skipper Rohit Sharma has organized his troops and made smart decisions.
The Men in Blue would be well aware that they cannot become complacent. England would be a tough challenge compared to Zimbabwe. We mustn’t forget that England were out for revenge, as India had previously beaten them 2-1 in their own backyard.
Great move by Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma & Virat Kohli
Head Coach Rahul Dravid, Skipper Rohit Sharma & former captain Virat Kohli gave up their business-class seats to speed up the bowlers. According to ICC standards, a team is given 4 business class seats for travel and usually these seats are occupied by head coach, captain, vice captain and manager.
A support staff member was seen interacting with India Express and told the reason behind this initiative. “Before the tournament, we decided that since the pace bowlers are covering the maximum miles on the field day in, day out, they need to stretch their legs.” said a support worker.
India on a sandwich
The Men in Blue have no notable weakness in their team. The team hopes they continue their winning run as momentum is everything in T20I Cricket. Suryakumar Yadav’s rise has left India with a solid top order that could decimate any team on their day.
However, management would hope that Rohit Sharma hits a brilliant punch for looking a little scratchy. We all know how deadly Rohit can be in his day. It would be interesting to see if Yuzvendra Chahal gets a game as he has seen the benches warm up.
