The Indian team, led by Rohit Sharma, has already reached Australia for the ICC T20 World Cup. They are now gearing up for the mega event by playing warm-up matches. On Wednesday, the team tasted Indian cuisine at an Indian restaurant in Brisbane called “Mehfil” that is owned by Rajesh Sharma.
Rohit Sharma and the team came to Rajesh Sharma’s restaurant to have Indian food. Most of the players in the Indian team are vegetarians and they always prefer having typical desi food while travelling abroad.
The Men in Blue’s second warm-up match against New Zealand was cancelled as the rain played spoilsport on Wednesday at The Gabba.
Earlier, India beat Australia in a warm-up match at Gabba’s Brisbane on Monday. After losing the toss, the Indian team batted first and scored 187 runs against Australia to win. KL Rahul (33-ball 53) and Suryakumar Yadav (33-ball 50) scored half-centuries for India. Kane Richardson bagged the maximum four wickets for Australia. Captain Aaron Finch emerged as the star performer for his team, scoring 76 runs off 54 balls. In the end, Australia was bundled out for 180 runs in 20 overs.
Skipper Rohit Sharma brought him in to bowl the 20th over with Australia needing 11 runs for the win. Not only did Mohammed Shami successfully defend 11 runs but also picked up three wickets for just four runs to power India to a six-run win at Gabba.
