LONDON Oct 21: Indian cricket team players took up the dalgona candy challenge drawn from Netflix blockbuster ‘Squid Game’ in a promotional video shared by the ICC on Wednesday, ahead of the 2021 T20 World Cup.
The challenge, part of the third episode of the South Korean drama, requires players to carve out shapes drawn in the candies without breaking it. In the show, players who fail to do so within the stipulated time, or break the candy are killed.
Squid Game is a South Korean survival drama television series streaming on Netflix. The series revolves around a contest in which 456 players, drawn from different walks of life but each deeply in debt, play a series of children’s games for the chance to win a ₩45.6 billion prize, with a deadly penalty if they lose.
The game has gone viral on social media platforms in recent weeks, and the Indian cricket team was not to be left behind.
