Team India cricketers took some time off from their practice to have some fun as they visited a popular beach in West Indies ahead of the 3rd ODI on Wednesday (July 27). The Men in Blue are currently in a light mood, having sealed the series with one match to go.
Riding on batting masterclasses from Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson and Axar Patel, the Men in Blue gunned down 312 runs in the second game with two balls to spare to wrap up the series.
The cricketers have shared some snapshots on social media from their trip to Pigeon Point beach in Tobago, in which they are clearly seen having a great time. On Tuesday, July 26, Team India batter Suryakumar Yadav shared an Insta story in which he was seen posing with wife Devisha Shetty and other members of the ODI outfit during their beach visit.
Team India will be keen to complete a 3-0 whitewash of the West Indies when they take on the hosts in the final ODI in Trinidad on Wednesday, July 27.
