The same was the case on Wednesday when he took the field with Team India against Australia during the fourth and final One-Day International (ODI) at the MA Chidambaram (Chepauk) Stadium in Chennai. Right before the team entered the field, the in-house disco jockey (DJ) played the local favourite Bollywood tune of 'Lungi Dance' from the famous movie Chennai Express.
