One can expect the unexpected in the Indian Premier League (IPL). When Mumbai Indians (MI) registered only a solitary victory in first six games this season, even the most eternal optimist fans of the side wrote-off them off. In a remarkable turnaround, they went on to be the first side to make it to the final, when they beat Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the first qualifier at Wankhede stadium.

The MI players are training hard and sweating on the ground to win the coveted trophy. With Jonty Rhodes the franchise’s fielding coach, one can think of the dedication and effort one has to put in the field in order to please him.

After finishing the drills for the day, pacer Marchant de Lange challenged Pawan Suyal to gulp two rehydrates sachets without water for five seconds and promised to pay Rs 1000, if he completed the task. Before starting the task, Suyal looked bewildered and asked Ben Hilfenhaus regarding the rehydrates after-effects.

Suyal took up the challenge and completed it successfully to the amusement of de Lange and Hilfenhaus. Truly, MI players never shy away from challenges.
