New Delhi: A day after Team India suffered a 7-wicket loss against Faf du Plessis-led South Africa in the ongoing T20 series, Indian skipper MS Dhoni, his deputy Virat Kohli and Team Director Ravi Shastri were seen cheering for South African rugby team.
In a video posted by AB de Villiers, the South African batsman managed to convince Dhoni, Kohli and even Shastri to cheer for his country’s rugby team – Springboks.
De Villiers, who is South Africa's ODI captain, made a short video featuring South African cricketers and Indian cricketers saying “Bokke” – nickname of the South Africa’s rugby team. They are currently taking part in the ongoing rugby World Cup being organised in England.
