The Indian cricketers were along with Bangladesh cricketers as they boarded a chartered flight from Chittagong to Dhaka. Star India batter Virat Kohli was seen seated next to Bangladesh pacer Taskin Ahmed on the flight.
The players of both teams will have a break from training session on Monday. The visitors will train in the morning on Tuesday as part of preparations for the second test match.
Former India captain Virat Kohli along with stand-in skipper KL Rahul were seen batting at the nets immediately after the first test ended at Chittagong. Both Virat and Rahul would like to score a big knock.
Meanwhile, most of the Indian cricketers enjoyed the FIFA World Cup 2022 final on a giant screen in the team hotel at Chittagong. In the pictures shared by the BCCI, the team can be seen hooked onto the screen as they enjoyed the FIFA World Cup 2022 final which was being played between France and Argentina at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar. The match was a thriller with both teams remaining inseparable as it went to the penalties where Argentina snatched the trophy.
Team India batter Shreyas Iyer and Kuldeep Yadav posted a photo of them bowing in front of Messi on giant screen.
Earlier skipper KL Rahul had also revealed that they would watch the match and have a good mean after the game, adding that they don’t have any particular fan of Argentina and France.
“I don’t know, I think most of the guys in the team, whichever team we were supporting, are all out already. So, there were a few Brazil fans, a few England fans. I don’t know who Argentina or France supporters are. So, we will just enjoy the game today. We are all watching the game together and we’ll have a good meal,” Rahul said in the post-match press conference.
