The Indian cricket team made the most of their off day in Antigua as players and support staff headed to the beach to unwind ahead of the third ODI against West Indies.

The players first tried their hands at volleyball before turning to sea-adventure activities like jet-ski. The players also had a dip in the clear blue water before heading back to the hotel.

Pandya, after the fun time, said: “A wonderful day with the team has finally come to an end. We had amazing fun playing volleyball and riding the jet-ski. We got to swim in clear blue water and it was an amazing day… some really amazing memories to take back home.”

The Indian team support staff is trying to ensure a happy environment in the team following head coach Anil Kumble’s resignation after the ICC Champions Trophy final which India tamely lost to Pakistan.
