Hardik Pandya’s photo is going viral for an intriguing reason.

After Team India secured a spot in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup, some players from the Indian squad were seen taking a rare day off. After their victory against Bangladesh in the last match, the cricketers were seen spending some time basking in the sun and enjoying the English summer.

Before the game against Sri Lanka, who have already been eliminated, Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya posted a picture on Twitter with MS Dhoni, Mayank Agarwal, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah and captioned it: “Boys day out”.
