Indian cricketers enjoy game of badminton after Test victory


Colombo: Fresh from their win in the series-levelling second cricket Test against Sri Lanka, some Indian players including captain Virat Kohli were today seen enjoying a game of badminton here. The players had a day off after humbling the hosts by 278 runs at the P Sara Oval to deny Kumar Sangakkara a fairytale ending in his swansong yesterday.

BCCI’s twitter handle and the Indian cricket team’s official facebook page posted the picture of Kohli alongwith Harbhajan Singh, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Cheteshwar Pujara taking some time off from cricket at the badminton courts.

Harbhajan also posted a picture of him along with Kohli and Stuart Binny enjoying a ‘tuk-tuk’ ride in the city. Sri Lankans call autorickshaws as tuk-tuks. India take on Sri Lanka in the third and final game on August 28 at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground here.
