The Indian team players are currently holidaying in different parts of the UK after the loss against New Zealand at the World Test Championship (WTC) Final. Skipper Virat Kohli is on a break with his wife Anushka Sharma while Rohit Sharma is too spending some quality time with his family in this three-week break.

Meanwhile, India’s wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was spotted last night at the iconic Wembley Stadium during the Euro 2020 Round of 16 England versus Germany clash. The 23-year-old posted some of his pictures, along with a few close friends. He captioned the post as “Good experience”.

However, the Delhi Capitals skipper was not seen wearing a mask in a crowded stadium during the COVID-19 pandemic times. Soon after the photographs surfaced on the internet, some fans started commenting and questioning “Why no mask?”

Here are some of the top comments from the Twitterati:

Coming to the result of the match, the English side beat the Germans 2-0 to book a berth against Ukraine in the quarter-final match. Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane netted the ball to clinch an iconic victory for the ‘three lions’.
