The Head Coach of the Indian team Ravi Shastri, along with skipper Virat Kohli led the teams’ Independence Day celebrations in England, earlier today. It was the duo of Shashtri and Kohli who hoisted the national flag, outside their team hotel in the British capital, after which the entire team joined them in singing the national anthem.
The scenes outside the team hotel, on August 15, in England, were quite a spectacle. It felt one’s heart with pride to see the team hoist the national flag in London on an auspicious day.
The Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video on their Twitter account. The post read, “On Independence Day, members of #TeamIndia came together to honour the tricolour in England. What a proud moment this.”
The post also had a video message with it. It was Captain Virat Kohli who wished all the Indians on the occasion of Independence Day. See the video that BCCI posted on their website:

The Indian team is currently down and out in England. With two Test losses in the opening two matches, the Indian team would need a lot of thinking, and most importantly, some resolve in their performances. So far, the performances have been shambolic. India would need to win or draw the third match at Trent Bridge in order to stay alive in the series. The third match of the five-match Test series will begin at Trent Bridge from August 18.
