After having won both of their matches in the Asia Cup 2022 and qualifying for the Super Four, the India team enjoyed a much-deserved day off. To make the most of it, the Men in Blue went on to take part in water activities ahead of their Super Four match.

In a video posted by the Indian Cricket Board’s official Twitter handle, the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Suryakumar Yadav and others were seen surfing, kayaking, playing volleyball and just relaxing on the beach.

“It was an off-day so Rahul Dravid sir decided that we should have some fun activities. It was good fun, and relaxing. We had some great fun. You can see how everyone is happy and excited. This all helps in creating team bonding,” Chahal said in the video.

“This is our cricket family and you can see how happy and excited they are. If this keeps on happening then you bond well and stay united like a team,” Chahal said as he reappeared on the video.

Teams readying themselves for the Super Four

India, having qualified for the Super Four, now look ahead to their next match on September 4, which will be against the winner between Hong Kong and Pakistan. So far, three teams have qualified for the Super Four namely, India, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. The winner of the Hong Kong vs Pakistan team will be the fourth team to qualify for the Super Four.

India have, so far, defeated Pakistan and Hong Kong in their first two matches. Virat Kohli, who was out of form for more than a couple of years, finally came up with an unbeaten half-century against Hong Kong to ignite hopes in the hearts of millions of fans.

Afghanistan have come out as a surprise package in this Asia Cup 2022 as they defeated both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in their group stage matches. The do-or-die match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh was won by Sri Lanka in the last over, making them the third team to qualify for the Super Four.
