India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has shared an adorable photograph with his two daughters from quarantine in England. Though they look cute in the image, Ashwin said their faces appeared “jet lagged”. The Instagram image, showing all the three looking into the camera, was clicked at a facility inside the Southampton Stadium, where members of the Indian cricket team and their families are undergoing the mandatory 10-day quarantine before the start of the World Test Championship (WTC) final on June 18, in which India will be taking on New Zealand.
The post has been liked by more than 1.23 lakh people within two hours of being posted. A lot of people have also commented on the post.
A user, Mina 45, said the elder girl in the image looks like Ashwin and the younger one looks like Ashwin’s wife Prithi Narayanan.
“Sir final mei 20 wkt lelo (Sir, please take 20 wickets in the final),” said Sunnie.
“Lovely picture,” said a person with the username Deepak90_shreyas41.
This is not the first time Ashwin has shared an image of his daughters from quarantine. A week ago, he had shared another image with them when they were in quarantine in Mumbai before flying to the UK.
“Quarantine cuddles,” the spinner had captioned the post.
The Indian team flew to England and has now reached Southampton where the WTC final is to be played. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video documenting the entire journey of the Indian contingent for the more than 100 days stay in the UK.
It showed players reaching the Mumbai airport and then arriving at London’s Heathrow airport. They then took a bus ride to the Ageas Bowl cricket ground.

The Ageas Bowl has a hotel within the stadium complex and that’s where the team is quarantining. After the WTC final, India will take on hosts England in a five-Test series starting at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, from August 4.
