The Indian cricketers, Rohit Sharma and Yuzvendra Chahal spent some light moments off the field and Chahal’s wife Dhanashree Verma captured both of them taking a dig at each other. Chahal posted the pictures captured by his wife and captioned as “Senorita.” Both Rohit and Chahal are part of India’s squad for the ongoing three-match ODI series against England. Chahal’s post is an addition to a series of pictures posted by Indian players, who enjoyed some time off the cricket after winning the first ODI.
In the picture, Rohit can be seen offering Chahal a flower in the first frame and they are captured breaking into sheepish smiles in the second. Dhanashree commented on Chahal’s post: “Didn’t have to ask them to pose. Btw thanks for the pic credit.”

While Chahal didn’t feature in the playing XI for the ODI series opener, Rohit scored 28 off 42 balls in India’s score of 317 for 5. The right-handed opening batsman suffered a blow on his right elbow while batting and did not take the field in the second innings.
The first ODI also saw Shreyas Iyer suffering a partial dislocation on his shoulder while fielding and it was confirmed on Wednesday that he had been ruled out of the series.
Iyer dislocated his shoulder and will also be expected to miss the entire upcoming edition of the IPL 2021. India and England will play the second ODI of the three-match series in Pune on Friday where the hosts will look to seal the series while the visiting team will aim to draw level and set up a final clash on March 28 at the same venue.
Earlier, India had won the five-match T20I series 3-2 and the four-match Test series 3-1. The players from both teams who will also e playing the IPL are likely to move into the IPL bubble after this series. IPL 2021 is scheduled to be commencing on April 9.
