“These conversations took place in the dressing room. We were not aware of it and were playing our game. At one point, accidentally I played a single and Vihari faced off spin. After facing the over, he said that he couldn’t move his feet. I got shocked as Ravi Shastri was shouting from the dressing room. We went into a tunnel vision and couldn’t see what’s happening in the outside world. That is the time Shardul Thakur entered the field to provide drinks” Ashwin said.
“Shardul came into the field and breathed hard for a while. I wanted him to say something. He said ‘they (people in the dressing room) wanted me to convey many things to you both. But I am not going to say anything. You two were playing well. continue to do it’ and I got puzzled and wondered what kind of message is this” Ashwin said to which Sridar revealed that they thought he conveyed the message. “Only after finishing the match, he revealed about what you people wanted him to convey” Ash added.
