In pics: Team India players chill ahead of final in Cuttack
Cuttack : The players of Indian cricket team were seen taking a chill pill ahead of their final game against West Indies in Cuttack on Sunday.
Both the teams have one-one game in the series so far after West Indies handed India a defeat by 8 wickets in Chennai but the hosts came back strongly in Vizag, taking the second ODI by 107 runs.
Ahead of the final game to be played on Sunday, Virat Kohli and his team was given a day off and the players made the most of it. In the pictures shared on social media, Virat Kohli can be seen enjoying with teammates Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul for the team bonding session. Skipper Kohli wrote: "A day off and an afternoon with the boys is exactly what we needed."
Team India had received a wonderful welcome in Bhubaneswar as they arrived to the hotel in Thursday. They put on a traditional cloth around their neck and danced to a popular Bollywood song at their arrival. The West Indies team was welcomed in a similar manner too as they checked in to the hotel.
Meanwhile, Deepak Chahar will not be playing the 3rd ODI against the West Indies as he received back injury. Delhi pacer Navdeep Saini has been announced as his replacement. “The BCCI medical team examined him and has suggested that the fast bowler needs some rest in order to fully recover,” said BCCI in a statement.
