It seems Indian team is having a gala time in West Indies but batsman KL Rahul has crossed the line a bit posting an image in social media with a beer bottle, inviting a lot of criticism. In the image Rahul was seen alongside team-mates Umesh Yadav and Stuart Binny enjoying a day out with a beer bottle in hand.

The BCCI took the issue seriously and came down heavily on the batsman. According to a report, the governing body shot off an advisory to the Indian team.

Though Rahul, who has struck two consecutive half-centuries in practice games on the tour so far, immediately deleted the post.

The first Test of the series begins July 21 in Antigua, and the team has already arrived at the venue.

It is Kumble's first assignment as the chief coach of the team and Virat Kohli's first tour of the Caribbean as Test captain.
