2017 ICC Champions Trophy: Indian Players Deprived Of Sound Sleep Ahead Of Big Final
Indian cricket team was deprived of sound sleep ahead of the big final against Pakistan of the ICC Champions Trophy. After packing up with their routine, all the players were in their rooms by 8:30 PM when they found that the ACs installed in the rooms were not working, which deprived them of a sound sleep. As per reports, some of the players also complain about power failure as well.
The matter was solved after a long period of an hour and 45 minutes. Till the time, players stayed awake despite an early start to the game on the next day.
It is to be noted that the weather in the UK is much hotter than the normal days and there is no forecast of rain and the heat is still scorching down there.
The result of being deprived of sound sleep was seen on the field when Indian team let Pakistan score big score of 338/4, in the race to which India lost three early wickets with target still 300 runs away.
Mohammed Amir was the man for Pakistan as in the very first over, the left-arm pacer cleaned up Rohit Sharma by trapping in front of stumps. His next scalp was Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who was given a second chance after being dropped but Kohli failed to grab second chance as well and was dismissed on the very next ball. Shikhar Dhawan followed them soon, to put Indian team in deep trouble.
Now all the hopes are on Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh to get past the peak total of Pakistan, and help India defend their title.
