It was a feast for the eyes to see so many former legendary cricketers from different countries play as a team. While things are going well on the pitch, former Australian cricketer Mitchell Johnson, who represents India Capitals at LLC 2022, had a different experience off the pitch when he saw a snake in his hotel room in Kolkata.
The pacer shared a photo of the snake on his Instagram, writing: “Anyone knows what kind of snake this is?? Just hangs in my room door.” Even Brett Lee reacted to his photo, commenting on it with just three emojis: Snake, Thumbs Down, and Laughter.
Earlier, in an interview with PTI, Johnson said India’s squad for the T20 World Cup seems “a bit risky” as they are likely to be “a pace short” for the bouncy pitches Down Under. The skilled Mohammad Shami has been kept on standby, which has surprised a few experts of the game as Indian selectors continued to maintain confidence in the quartet led by Jasprit Bumrah with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel and Arshdeep Singh in the ranks.

“If you have an all-rounder (fast bowling) and a couple of spinners, four fast bowlers, it’s a bit of a risk. But India is probably looking at playing two pacers and an all-rounder (Hardik Pandya) and two spinners.” Johnson, who is in India to compete in Legends League Cricket, told PTI.
