After having a victory against Pakistan in Manchester on Sunday, India is to face Afghanistan in Southampton on Saturday. Having a five-day break between the two matches, Indian cricket team had time to relax and regain their strength for the next match.
All-rounder Vijay Shankar, in a video posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) described how he spent his day off.
In the video, Shankar spoke about how his favourite activity during his day off is to play a word game on his phone .
The 28-year-old also revealed that Dinesh Karthik and KL Rahul were among others in the team who play the game and also claimed that he was the best among the three.
Shankar was hit on his toe by a Jasprit Bumrah yorker during a training session, but reports coming out of the Indian camp suggest it’s nothing serious.
Team India, so far has had a terrific run in the ICC Cricket World Cup. With three wins and a no result in four games, the Virat Kohli-led team is currently in fourth place on the points table.
With the next match scheduled against Afghanistan, who are yet to win a game, the Indian camp will not have much to worry about apart from injury management and making sure no other player picks up a niggle. Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is nursing a hamstring niggle and according to captain Virat Kohli could miss at least India’s next two matches.
