With the freedom to enjoy life in leisure time, cricketers are having a great time both on and off the field. Usually, cricketers have fun among themselves in the dressing room.

This time, we witnessed a cracker of action-packed entertainment between India and New Zealand in a different game called ‘soccer volleyball’.

MS Dhoni and Manish Pandey from the Men in blue, Martin Guptill, Trent Boult and Tim Southee from the Black Caps took the game to another step in intensity.

In a rain-curtailed T20I decider that was cut down to 8 overs per side, India got the better of New Zealand by 6 runs to win their 1st ever bilateral T20I series over Kiwis.

The picturesque scene of seeing both nations involving in an interesting game after the T20I decider seemed more like the phrase ‘rivals on the field and friends off the field’.

The players made possible arrangements by keeping the benches in the middle in order to divide it making a court like an appearance to ensure that game would go on good.

Blues and Blacks were spotted having a great deal of fun. Martin Guptill who captured this video took to his official Instagram account handle to share this clip.
