New Delhi: The rain played spoilsport during the 3rd T20 match between India and New Zealand played at Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. Heavy showers ensured a frustrating day for fans, while players stayed indoors for a couple of hours.

While the ground staff was busy making preparations to get the ground ready after the rain stopped, players in the dressing room played their own match to keep themselves busy.

Former Team India captain MS Dhoni paired up with Manish Pandey to take on New Zealand pair of Martin Guptill and Tom Bruce in a game of 'Footvolley'.

On Wednesday Guptill took to Instagram account to post a video of all four players engaged in the game. He captioned it saying: “What do you do in a rain delay? Play soccer volleyball with @tombruce42 @mahi7781 and @manishpandeyinsta
