Melbourne: Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took to social media to share a picture with his teammates Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, and Jasprit Bumrah.
The Indian cricketers posed in front of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) honours board after Ajinkya Rahane & Co. defeated Australia by 8 wickets in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Tuesday (December 29).

Ashwin and Rohit Sharma were involved in some cheeky banter over Pujara’s pose in the picture shared by Ashwin. In the picture, everyone’s smiling and relaxed but despite the smile on Pujara’s face, he stood firm and straight unlike his other teammates.
Rohit wrote a cheeky comment on Pujara. “Pujara too stiff,” wrote Rohit. Ashwin was quick to respond and wrote back “National anthem was playing in his head.” Australia and India are set to play the 3rd Test on Sydney starting from January 7.
