T20 World Cup 2022 India dines at British Raj before playing England

The “Men in Blue” have been living out of their suitcases ever since they arrived in Australia. As the showpiece entered its business end, the players took some time to bond with one another and relax at a well-known Indian restaurant before the big T20 world cup semi-final.

The irony was not lost on anyone in Australia as the Indian players dined at a restaurant called “British Raj” prior to putting their heads together to devise a strategy to defeat England in the T20 World Cup semifinal.

The “Men in Blue” have been living out of their suitcases ever since they arrived in Australia. As the showpiece entered its business end, the players took some time to bond with one another and relax at a well-known Indian restaurant before the big semi-final.

On Thursday, the team captained by Rohit Sharma will attempt to put an end to England’s winning streak in this iteration of the global meet.

This region of the world is particularly well-known for the chicken tikka, Kashmiri pilau, and lamb rogan josh that can be found at the restaurant that can be found at 170, Henley Beach Road in Torrensville.

Earlier on in the competition, the Indian team had a few complaints about the type of menu that had been decided upon by the ICC. The players’ sense of taste was not satisfied by it.

“The team and the players hardly had any time to relax and take their mind off from the pressure of a high-octane tourney like World Cup since there has been hardly any time between games,” a senior BCCI official who is privy to the team activities told PTI. “The team and the players hardly had any time to relax and take their mind off from the pressure of a high-octane tourney like World Cup.”

“…And way too many flights within the country, because spending three days in Adelaide is like being in heaven. As a result, the players and their partners (wives and girlfriends) who were in attendance came together for a dinner as a team. In addition to serving as an opportunity to strengthen bonds within the team, this activity provides complete relaxation “he added.

The Indian cricket team is the most commercially viable squad, so its schedule has been packed with travel around all of the major cities in Australia.

They began their journey in Mumbai and continued it in Perth. After completing its first round of intensive training and practice games in Perth over the course of seven days, the team continued on to play another round of official warm-up games (one washed out in Brisbane). Before they arrived in Melbourne, they had traveled through two distinct time zones.

They started in Melbourne, where they remained for four days, then moved on to Sydney, where they remained for four days, then moved on to Perth, where they remained for three days (in a different time zone), then moved on to Adelaide, where they remained for three days, and then returned to Melbourne for another three days.

It has consisted solely of playing matches and keeping one’s fingers crossed for advancement onto the next flight, with a day of rest and an optional training session sandwiched in between.

Even when he was captaining the team and later when he was coaching the U-19 national team, head coach Rahul Dravid has always placed a strong emphasis on team bonding and activities.

On the day in question, Rohit was struck on the forearm; however, he is completely fine and there is no strapping on his right hand, which is something that must have delighted the fans who were present outside the team hotel.
