Team India members assembled in their personalized PPE kits before their departure to Australia for the tour. After a long and tough season of Indian Premier League (IPL), the players were off for National duty for a long-ish tour Down Under.
Before their departure, players posted on their social media accounts about the same as it was shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Here are some of the posts:
Skipper Virat Kohli posted, “En route Australia (indicated by the flag emoji),” along with Deepak Chahar in the picture.
The Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara posting on his Instagram account said that he was looking forward to this tour and this is the new normal in regard to their appearances in masks and PPE kits.
Other players followed suit as they posted about their departure on their Instagram and Twitter accounts.
