Indian players party with Jr NTR, superstar of RRR film
New Delhi. After beating Sri Lanka in the ODI series, India has to face New Zealand. The first match of the 3 ODI series between the two will be played in Hyderabad on 18 January. Team India under the leadership of Rohit Sharma has reached Hyderabad for this match. But, before fighting with New Zealand, the number-1 ODI team, Team India had a party. That too without captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
The host of this party was Junior NTR, the star of the blockbuster film RRR. He organized this party after the success of his film RRR at the Golden Globe Awards. The song ‘Naatu-Naatu’ from the film RRR was chosen as the Best Song at the Golden Globe Awards. Incidentally, Team India was also in Hyderabad. In such a situation, Junior NTR had invited Indian players for this success party of his film. In this, almost the entire team including Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Ishaan Kishan had reached India. Many pictures related to this party are going viral on social media.
The 3 ODI series between India and New Zealand is very important. New Zealand occupies the first place in the ODI rankings and has come to India after defeating Pakistan. Like Sri Lanka, if Team India is successful in clean sweeping New Zealand in the ODI series, then it will come first in the ODI rankings.
Indian ODI Squad: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shreyas Iyer, Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Shahbaz Ahmed, Washington Sundar, Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Shrikar Bharat (wicket-keeper), Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Umran Malik, Yuzvendra Chahal
