Dhawan and Pandya showoff their dance moves

Indian cricket players Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya are known for their antics on and off-field and this time, the batsman and all-rounder have come up with a dance move which will make you shake a leg.

As the Men in Blue gear up for the three-match T20Is, after a hectic net session, the two decided to relieve their stress by dancing. Dhawan's caption wrote,' We love to dance. Here is a legendary dance partnership - @hardikpandya93 and me. #dancing #squadgoals'. Take a look. 

The duo were dancing to the 2018 FIFA World Cup's official theme song 'Live it Up' in case you were wondering. Looks like the football fever has got to the players as well.

Dhawan has been fine form lately, playing shots with finesse and scoring runs. Dhawan scored 74 runs off 45 deliveries in the 1st T20I match against Ireland which India comfortably won by 76 runs.

Pandya, on the other hand, has still trying to fit into Kapil Dev's image as an all-rounder and is slowly proving his worth in the Indian team. He scored a blistering 32 off 9 deliveries which consisted of 4 sixes and 1 four.

Pandya spent a considerable time bowling to Rohit Sharma. He was seen mixing slow off-cutters with usual length deliveries. The all-rounder from time to time sought the feedback of the Indian vice-captain.

Specialist pacers Umesh Yadav and Siddarth Kaul were honing their skills of blockhole deliveries.

In a separate net, Dhawan after a customary net session devoted extra time to counter short-pitched deliveries.

He took throwdowns with a heavy plastic ball in order to counter the extra bounce. He then perfected the trademark pull shots against tennis ball throwdowns.
