While in London, Indian cricketers Dinesh Karthik and Ravindra Jadeja uploaded photos of themselves enjoying break time with a beer.
While Karthik is in England doing commentary, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is in the UK with the Indian Test squad for a long tour.
Karthik and Jadeja shared photos of themselves relaxing on their Instagram accounts on Monday. Karthik shared two photos, both of which he appeared to be in a good mood, and wrote:
“Better latte than never… #Coffee #LondonLife #CoffeeLover #MondayMood.”
Jadeja, on the other hand, captioned his pictures:
“Have a nice day”
He also included a hot beverage emoji at the end of the caption.
Before the five-match Test series against England, the Indian squad is taking a break from the bio-bubble. In the World Test Championship (WTC) final in Southampton, they were defeated by New Zealand by eight wickets.
The selection of Jadeja for the WTC final was questioned, as he was chosen as the Indian XI’s second spinner on a pitch with a lot of swing action.
Many cricket observers believe India made a mistake by playing Jadeja instead of bringing in a third pacer. In the Test, the Saurashtra cricketer only took one wicket and scored 31 runs over two innings.
Dinesh Karthik recently apologized for making a sexist remark while commentating.
On Sunday, Dinesh Karthik, who was commentating on the England-Sri Lanka limited-overs series, apologized on live for a misogynistic remark he made during the second ODI between the two teams.
Cricket bats were compared to the “neighbor’s wife” by Karthik, a comparison that did not sit well with
spectators. The wicketkeeper-batsman had said:
“Batsmen and not liking bats, they go hand in hand. Most of the batters don’t seem to like their bats. They either like another person’s bat. Bats are like a neighbour’s wife. They always feel better.”
Karthik apologized after the third ODI against England and Sri Lanka after receiving a lot of flak on social media.
“I want to apologise for what happened last game. It’s not really what I intended. I just got it all wrong. I
apologise to everybody. It’s definitely not the right thing to say. I am really sorry that it shouldn’t happen
again. I got a lot of stick from my wife and my mum for saying that.”
Karthik was also a member of the English commentary crew for the WTC final, and his wit and insightful analysis wowed fans.
