India National Cricket Team batting great Virat Kohli alongside senior leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was seen carrying the drinks onto the field during the second ODI between India and West Indies at the Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados on Saturday, July 29.
Virat Kohli and Yuzvendra Chahal are not part of India’s playing XI in the ongoing second ODI match. Kohli alongside captain Rohit Sharma has been rested for the match as the team management wants to test out some new faces ahead of the World Cup. On the other hand, Chahal has fallen behind in the pecking order as Kuldeep Yadav has been the first-choice wrist-spinner in the playing XI in the ongoing series.
Meanwhile, Kohli and Chahal shed their star status and served drinks on the field in the second ODI. They were seen carrying the drinks after the 37th over of India’s innings when Kuldeep Yadav and Shardul Thakur were out in the middle.

Earlier, West Indies won the toss and chose to field in the match. They made two changes to their team as Alzarri Joseph and Keacy Carty came in for Rovman Powell and Dominic Drakes. The visitors also made two changes as Axar Patel and Sanju Samson replaced Kohli and Rohit in the team, with Hardik being handed the captaincy.
The West Indies bowlers showed tremendous efforts and bundled out India for just 181 in 40.5 overs. Romario Shepherd and Gudakesh Motie were the top performers for their side as they bagged two wickets each.
Talking about India, the wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan once again played a good 55 runs knock. However, other than Kishan no batter was able to hit a fifty. Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav got good starts and they looked settled in the middle, but they were unable to play big innings.
