"Shave karni padegi"

It helps being Virender Sehwag’s cousin; Mayank Tehlan knows the power of television. Ask him if he’s ready for the semi-final against England tomorrow and he says, running his fingers over the 5 o’clock shadow, ‘‘Shave karni padegi.’’

Mayank was ready, alright - Clean-shaven, glasses on, collar and sleeves up. So were all his team-mates. The semi-final was the first game in the tournament that was being telecast live and the boys were more than eager to make an impression on the screen. Everytime the camera zoomed in on the dressing room, they would frantically start waving their hands.
Prasad then says that the team had just watched the famous NatWest final at Lord’s, 2002, to get into the mood to face England. Much to get inspired by — including the captain taking off his shirt on the balcony!

Well, they were definitely a couple who were sitting in the dressing room with their shirts off. But that was more to do with the humidity rather than an attempt to emulate Ganguly.
