The members of the Indian cricket team celebrated Diwali ahead of taking part in their final game of the World Cup 2023 league stage against the Netherlands. The Men in Blue donned the ethnic attire as they were spotted having a fun night away from gearing up for the game against the Dutch team. The BCCI took to their social media handle where skipper Rohit Sharma, head coach Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli were spotted having a good time at their hotel.
The Indian team under the leadership of Rohit Sharma has been playing brilliant cricket in the ongoing mega event as they have not lost a single game so far, winning all of their eight matches. The likes of Virat Kohli and Mohammed Shami have been unstoppable as the latter has recorded a massive 543 runs in just eight innings and on the back of his terrific batting, he also equalled the legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI tons.
