As the Team India lead by skipper Virat Kohli, left for England to take part in the ICC World Cup 2019, the star Indian cricketers were noticed to playing popular online game PUBG at airport.
The official twitter handle of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) uploaded few pictures of the players at the airport and the post read in which star India cricketers Mohammad Shami and Yuzvendra Chahal were clearly noticed playing the game.
Tweet along with pics read, “ “Jet set go. #CWC19 #TeamIndia”.
In the pics Mahendra Singh Dhoni was seated opposite to Chahal with a device in his hand and fans feel he too was having a go at the game.
It is no secret that Indian players indulge themselves in this popular game as Yuzvendra Chahal was earlier quoted by Hindustan Times that the players take out time to play the game together.
“Whenever I feel something, I always talk to the senior players — Virat (Kohli) bhaiya, Mahi (MS Dhoni) bhai, Rohit (Sharma) bhaiya, Shikhar (Dhawan) bhaiya. They always help me. When Virat bhaiya is not there, I always [speak to] Rohit bhaiya and ask him what to do and what not to do. Mahi bhai and I play PUBG together sometimes (laughs). Seven-eight people play PUBG for two hours. We go for dinners, [have] fun.
Before India open their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5 in Southampton, the ‘Men in Blue’ are scheduled to play New Zealand and Bangladesh in their two warm-up matches at Oval and Rose Bowl respectively.
