In a fine gesture, the Indian hockey team members - in the city for a preparatory camp - were invited by the BCCI to watch their cricket counterparts take on Bangladesh at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on Wednesday.

India's hockey team members at Chinnaswamy Stadium watch some cricket.

Former India hockey players Gagan Ajit Singh and Rajpal Singh may have done duty as security personnel at Mohali, but their younger peers got a feel of the action at the ICC World Twenty20 in a completely different capacity.

In a fine gesture, the Indian hockey team members - in the city for a preparatory camp - were invited by the The Board of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI) to watch their cricket counterparts take on Bangladesh at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on Wednesday.

Clad in red t-shirts, head coach Roelant Oltmans and his players savoured the view from the terrace stand. “The entire squad is here. The atmosphere at the stadium is fantastic. We are having a good time,” defender V. R. Raghunath told Sportstar.

“It is a privilege to be here. We are thankful to the BCCI for this gesture,” the penalty corner specialist added.
