Team India will be seen in the 50-overs format for the first time after their heartbreaking ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final loss last month as they will be locking horns against West Indies in the first of the three-match ODI series at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Thursday. Virat Kohli & Co. who had registered a 3-0 clean sweep in the T20I series will now be looking to continue their dominance in the limited-overs against the Windies.
Ahead of the first ODI, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer were seen having a lot of fun. So what was the duo up to? Let's take a look.
Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan and young batsman Shreyas Iyer were seen taking up the "Speak Out" Challenge where the duo had a tough time because of what the challenge demanded. The challenge demanded them to wear a mouthpiece which ensured that their mouths could not be shut and they had to speak by wearing it. The two batsmen can then be seen guessing each other's phrases which included 'I Mentioned My Feelings To My Father' and 'Yeh Mazdoor Ka Haath Hai Kaatiya, Pinjre Me Aake Sher Bhi Kutta Ban Jaata Hai.
The video of this hilarious contest was posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on their official Twitter handle.

The netizens also enjoyed the funny video which involved the Delhi Capitals team-mates. Here's how they reacted.
Both Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer had played together for the Delhi Capitals in the IPL earlier this year. Under Iyer's leadership, the Delhi franchise reached the playoffs for the first time in seven years and finished at the third position.
