MI punishes Arshad, and Hrithik for coming late to the meeting
Earlier this month, MI also punished two of their young players- Arshad Khan and Hrithik Shokeen, for showing up late to a meeting in a similar manner. The youngsters were subjected to disciplinary action and were told to wear an alternate shirt on their way to the next match's location. Notably, the players were seen wearing a shirt and bottom with all of Mumbai's players' faces emblazoned on it.
"I came late for two meetings. I was sleeping during one, and during the second one, I was sleeping, so I got late by 10 minutes," said Arshad Khan.
Meanwhile, the talented all-rounder, Shokeen, confirmed that he was handed the punishment for showing up late for the practice session held by the Mumbai Indians.
