Deepak Chahar and Krunal Pandya

The players in the Team India stay together like a family as they spend most of their time together especially on the overseas tours. They have a lot of fun which creates a special bonding between them. Also, whenever a new member is added to the family, the cricketers have a task on their hands to make them comfortable. A couple of new-comers, Krunal Pandya and Deepak Chahar earned a maiden call-up to the national side recently and they had to go through a hilarious test as soon as they entered the dressing room.

Both the cricketers were recently with India A side who played the tri-series in England involving the Lions and Windies A and went on to win it as well. Chahar, one of the finds of the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year, was the highest wicket-taker (13) of the series. Krunal also did exceptionally well and he was always on the radar of the national selectors.

They were included in the team as the injury replacements for Jasprit Bumrah and Washington Sundar. While the former broke his thumb while playing in the first T20I against Ireland the young off-spinner twisted his ankle while playing football which was a part of their training.

No wonder the new member in the team has to suffer a little with the senior cricketers in the team making their fun in a good way in order to make them feel comfortable in the change room. Both, Deepak Chahar and krunal pandya, were made to introduce themselves by standing on the chair in front of the whole team ahead of the first T20 International against England in Manchester.

It was a fun activity as Shikhar Dhawan, the opener of the team, recorded the video of the same and posted it on his Instagram story. Now it will be interesting to see if they will be handed over a debut in the shortest format of the game. There is also a possibility that they might feature in the third and final match of the series if India manages to seal the series in the next game itself.
