Mohali: Cricketers joined in the holi festivities yesterday with the Australians celebrated the festival of colour at the team hotel, while Pakistan’s star all-rounder Shoaib Malik was seen playing with colour at the PCA Stadium here. The Australian team came out in full force to enjoy the festival, dancing to the beats of the dhol and DJ Glenn Maxwell, it is understood, later struggled to wash the colour off his body.

He wished ‘Happy Holi’ to a handful of fans waiting to click selfies with him near the PCA Stadium’s reception area. He even applied colour to some fans and posed for pictures. He spent a good five minutes with them before making a dash for the waiting team bus.
