Shikhar Dhawan led the Indian team who currently lead the 3 match ODI series in Sri Lanka took the game of ‘wrong answers only’ ahead of their third and final ODI against Sri Lanka in Colombo.
Indian cricketers play ‘Wrong Answers Only’ Challenge
BCCI shared a clip of players including Devdutt Padikkal, Sauryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Varun Chakravarthy, and Kuldeep Yadav taking part in the fun challenge.

In the video posted by BCCI on Twitter on Thursday, the young guns were seen giving ‘wrong answers only’ to some quirky questions like ‘what is your name?’ ‘which sport do Messi and Ronaldo play?’ ‘what is the shape of the earth?’ ‘who were the actors in 3 Idiots?’ and so on.
While almost all of them came up with some hilarious replies to all the questions, opening batsman Devdutt Padikkal perhaps took the cake when said his name was Roger Federer.
Chakravarthy gave a tough fight to Padikkal when said “My name is Rajnikant.”
The Pandya brothers too were at their best while giving the ‘wrong answers.’ Hardik said the actors in the 3 Idiots were he, Krunal, and Kieron Pollard.
Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan-led India won the first game by seven wickets. Chahar notched up his maiden ODI half-century, scoring an unbeaten 69 off 82 balls while Bhuvneshwar scored 19 off 28 balls as the duo added an unbeaten stand of 84 runs for the eighth wicket to help India win the game with five balls to spare.
It was a heroic effort from the duo as they pulled off an unlikely win for the visitors from an improbable situation.
Now, it remains to be seen whether India continues with Prithvi Shaw, who got scores of 43 and 13, to partner the skipper at the top, or go in for classy Devdutt Padikkal or an equally elegant Ruturaj Gaikwad — both superb List A players.
India will look to register a 3-0 complete clean sweep against Sri Lanka when they take on the hosts in the third and final ODI of the series on Friday (July 23).
