Just two days later, the fourteenth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will begin with reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI) taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Both the teams are working hard in the net sessions in order to prepare for the mega opening game of the upcoming season. Apart from the cricket training, the cricketers are also busy with promotional shoots, and the official Instagram handle of MI shared a glimpse of such on Tuesday.
The five-time winners shared a short video in which their star players Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Surya Kumar Yadav, and Pandya brothers (Hardik and Krunal) can be seen shaking their legs on a Marathi song, ‘NARLAN PAANI’.
The video starts with Rohit showing off his dance moves, followed by Surya Kumar, Bumrah and Pandya brothers. The creativity shown by Hardik and Krunal, who danced as a duo, was the main highlight.
The MI also asked their fans which of the players had the best dance steps. The admirers responded in the reply section, and the majority of them picked Rohit as the winner.
Here is the video:
