The Board of Control for Cricket in (BCCI) on Thursday found an interesting way of keeping their followers entertained and engaged on Twitter. The competition is called a “guessing game”. There should be at least two participants to play the game. India’s stand-in skipper Shikhar Dhawan and his teammate Prithvi Shaw were the first ones to play the game. The short clip of the same was shared on BCCI’s Twitter handle.
However, the full video of the game is available on BCCI’s website. Captioning the video on Twitter, BCCI wrote: “Loud music blaring in your ears. Your teammate miming and mouthing words. This guessing game takes a hilarious turn very soon. Presenting Music and Mime – Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw.”
The video starts with Prithvi Shaw explaining the rules of the game to Shikhar Dhawan as well as the viewers. After that, he picked a card from the table selected by Dhawan to start the game. Here is the video of the same:

The camaraderie and the friendship of the cricketers were on full display as they tried to guess what the other batsman was trying to say. In the game, while Dhawan had to guess the name of India’s Sri Lanka-bound players; Shaw was asked to guess the name of the food items that Shikhar Dhawan was mouthing.
At the end of the video, Dhawan and Shaw nominated India’s middle-order batsman Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav to play the game next. The post immediately became a big hit on social media as several cricket enthusiasts praised the Indian board for sharing the videos of different activities of the players.
Here are some of the reactions from the fans:
