It turned out to be a disappointing day for the big crowd at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, as the third T20I between India and South Africa was abandoned without a ball being bowled. After losing the first two matches of the 3-match series, Indian cricket fans were hoping that their team would put up a good show at the Eden Gardens and gain some much needed momentum ahead of the ODI series.
Despite the match being indecisive in the context of the series, it was a full-house at the Eden Garden as thousands of enthusiastic supporters filled the stands to watch their team play for pride in the third T20I.
But there was one moment from the washed-out game that fans would remember for a very long time. Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman, who is also a part of the commentary team for this tour, was wearing a shirt which was flamboyant as his shots. Laxman’s shirt was so flamboyant that it caught the attention of the Indian cricket team and the entire team, led by Harbhajan Singh, decided to let him know that how they loved his shirt.
MS Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh, Virat Kohli and the rest of the team are seen holding a banner which reads “Laxman we love your shirt.”
