Delhi Capitals and India’s openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw engage in a game of ‘Music & Mime’. The two players are part of India’s squad for the white ball tour of Sri Lanka.
Since the team is currently in quarantine following their arrival in Sri Lanka, the players have been engaged in social activities to keep up the spirits. In the latest venture, skipper Shikhar Dhawan and his opening partner Prithvi Shaw play a game called ‘Music & Mime’. One player with headphones on has to guess what the other one is miming/whispering.
In a tweet by the Board of Control for Cricket in India on its official handle, the players are seen having fun. The set of words chosen by the players were the Indian players in the squad for their Lankan tour while the other one was food items. BCCI posted the video with the caption:
“Loud music blaring in your ears
Your teammate miming & mouthing words
This guessing game takes a hilarious turn very soon

“Winning the series is the primary objective” – Rahul Dravid
The Virat Kohli-led team is holed up in England for a 5-match Test series. Therefore, the BCCI selected a different squad for a limited overs series against Sri Lanka. It will be led by Shikhar Dhawan, with Rahul Dravid as its coach. Several newcomers are part of the squad and we’re likely to see a few debutantes in the series.
Coach Rahul Dravid explained that the series might seem as an ‘audition’ for the upcoming T20 World Cup. But he was stern when stating that winning the series will be the top most priority.
“There are a lot of people in the squad who are pushing for places ahead of the T20 World Cup. But the key goal, and we’ve had discussions around it, is to try and win the series. That is the primary objective. Hopefully, if people can get the opportunity to put in some good performances in the course of us trying to win the series, they will give themselves the best chance of knocking on the doors of the selectors,” Dravid said.
