IPL 2020: Mumbai Indians enjoy the sun and the sand in Abu Dhabi
The four-time title winners' unwind on the pristine shores in the UAE
After having gone through the rigours of travel, workouts indoors and on field ahead of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League, defending champions Mumbai Indians hit the beach to unwind.
Mumbai Indians' team slogan 'One Family' came alive as the four-time title winners shared pictures of players and their families enjoying themselves on the pristine beach in the UAE.
Rohit Sharma, captain of Mumbai Indians, was seen relaxing on the shores along with daughter Samaira and wife Ritika while the cricketers also enjoyed playing beach football as well.
Jasprit Bumrah, Aditya Tare and Dhawal Kulkarni were all seen enjoying in the sun and sand.
And while on the subject of chilling out, all-rounder Krunal Pandya gave a virtual tour of the Team Room that has been set up at the team hotel, for the Mumbai Indians fans.
The squad have a wide range of activities to choose from and are spoilt for choice, with a basketball shooter, dart board, playstation, chess, board games, carrom, table tennis, pool table, foot volley and football.
"The basketball game and most of the players love playing this game. Here's another area I guess it's best suited to Boom (Bumrah). A dart board to practice your yorkers!" said Pandya.
With some of the players having travelled with their families, there is also a play area for kids too.
The team room also has a wall with pictures of MI fans with the MI flags.
"I know we are definitely going to miss you at the stadium this time. But you are with us, here in our team room. So, this is my favourite wall where a heart is made entirely of MI fans and MI flags. So, this is very special," he said.
There is also a separate section with a music band where Krunal and his brother Hardik plan to learn some instruments.
"Hardik and I have even set a target for ourselves to learn these instruments over these two months. So let's hope, whenever we get time, we will come," Pandya said.
