Canberra: The Indian players are bemused and laughing their guts out at the suggestion in Australian media that they toyed with the idea of boycotting the ongoing three-day warm-up game against Cricket Australia Chairman's XI because of rain.
"The story is completely baseless. There is no truth in it. Rain is a part of cricket. You don't leave a venue only because it's raining," said Indian team's media manager G S Walia here on Tuesday.
It rained heavily on the night prior to the start of the three-day game between the tourists and Cricket Australia Chairman's XI, forcing the game to begin only after lunch on Monday.
