India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and chinaman Kuldeep Yadav took cricket to a whole new level as they were seen playing in their hotel corridor ahead of the second ODI against West Indies on Sunday.

The duo are leaving no stone unturned in their preparations for the second match after the first ODI was washed out with just 13 overs being bowled in the match.

Kuldeep bowled to Pant, who had his wicketkeeping gloves on. The left-arm leg-spinner was getting some sharp turn despite bowling on a floor which was covered with a mat in their hotel corridor.

“Where ? When ? What ? Who ? …. No sorry … I only know the “WHY”, Pant titled the video.

After rain playing spoilsport in the first ODI of the three-game series in Guyana, India and West Indies have moved to the Queen’s Park Oval for the second game and both teams will be looking to start on the attack after a washed out opening game. Interestingly, Chris Gayle has been ignored for the Test series, so this game and the last one at the same venue could be the last couple of times that one sees the legend take the field on the international stage.

For India, it will be about starting afresh after a disappointing loss in the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup. The batting looks solid at the top with Shikhar Dhawan coming back to join Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli will once again get to play freely at the no.3 position as he doesn’t need to worry about building the innings as he had to during the showpiece event in England.

The middle-order kind of picks itself as the team didn’t get to bat in the opening game. So while Shreyas Iyer should get another go after having made the XI in the first game, Rishabh Pant definitely will be playing the role of the finisher unless there is a top-order collapse. Kedar Jadhav is also set to get a game over Manish Pandey as was the case in the opening tie.
