These players had devised strategies for dealing with their quarantine spells. Shaw and Yadav were imitating a moment from the film Andaz Apna Apna in the Social media image. On their Social media pages, they posted amusing and enjoyable video. Yadav captioned the post as “Sir aap purush hi nahi, maha purush hain.”
The video was well-received by their fans and followers, as seen by a large number of responses in the comment area. Yuzvendra Chahal and Rashid Khan added laughing emojis to the tweet as well. Prior to the 3rd Test, there are some rumblings regarding a few changes to India’s batting line-up.
The side’s middle order has been struggling for a while, with Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara failing to build on their respective efforts. With the options open to the squad, it would be interesting to see whether the Indian team decides to make any changes for the upcoming Test.
