In the video, the 59-year-old is seen throwing the tennis ball with a racquet all around the stadium as the dog enthusiastically runs to fetch it. The video also captured Indian skipper Virat Kohli watching Shastri and the dog having a fun time. “Our buddy Winston earns himself a tennis ball after #TeamIndia’s practice session #WTCfinal,” Shastri wrote on Twitter.

Take a look at the adorable video:

The cocker spaniel belongs to Ageas Bowl head groundsman Simon Lee. In 2020, ICC had shared a photo of the ‘very good doggo’ on Twitter.

Since being posted on Twitter, the video has amassed more than 1.1 lakh views and 14,000 likes. Needless to say, everyone who has come across the video has become a fan of this ‘good boi’.
