Brian Lara in Indian Dressing Room: Shikhar Dhawan was 1st to spot Lara. As soon as he saw him, he immediately went and hugged him. Chahal was there in the corridor was next to get completely awestruck as he saw Lara hugging Shikhar.
The Indian spin whizard immediately reached Lara to shake hands with him. Iyer joined the bunch later and kept listening to Lara. According to reports in local media, during the chat – Lara has also invited Indian team members to his home in Trinidad.
On the other hand the losing streak for the West Indies team now has reached 8 games. One more defeat at the same venue could see three consecutive whitewashes in ODI series.
As for Ravindra Jadeja, he is likely to be out of the entire ODI series as he gets ready for the five-match T20 series against West Indies. Jadeja suffered a knee injury before the 1st ODI and did not play the first two matches. As per information available with InsideSport, he is yet to recover completely, making him a doubtful starter for the 3rd ODI.
Look who came visiting the #TeamIndia dressing room 👏 👏
