Indian cricketers are having a comparatively easy time in the picturesque Caribbean, where they are involved in an ongoing five-match ODI series against the struggling West Indies. So far, in all three matches, it has been no less than a one-way traffic. The Indian team has taken a vital 2-0 lead after three games with the first contest being washed out, and in all likeliness is set to clinch the series without breaking a sweat.
Travelling can be taxing for the modern day cricketers but such tours, especially to the beautiful locations far away from home can present an entirely different opportunity to the players, and those accompanying them, to relax and enjoy their cricket.
Dipika Pallikal, the wife of Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik, is in the Caribbean as well. Karthik is a part of India’s squads for ODIs as well as the one-off T20I series.
India completed a 93-run victory in the third ODI on Friday and Dipika, the first Indian squash player to have broken into the top 10 of PSA’s Women’s Rankings, posted a photograph on her Instagram page of enjoying in a swimming pool.
“Travelling with the husband can be a tough job,” she wrote.
Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya replied to her message, “where is this pool” (sic)
On her reply Dipika said, “I have a private pool in our villa ! Come , I’ll serve you some nimbu Pani also ” (sic).
Hardik was quick to respond, saying, “haha you never told wait coming for nimbu pani and chat masala ” (sic).
India will be taking on West Indies in the fourth ODI at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua on Sunday, July 2. The fifth and final game of the series will be played at the Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica.
The one-off T20I between India and West Indies, which will mark the conclusion of Virat Kohli’s team’s sojourn in the Caribbean, will be played at Jamaica on July 9.
