The Indian players were taken around the locker room, gymnasium and the recuperation centre before indulging in a brief bout of play between the five of them.
Shikhar and Bhuvneshwar were chatting up the hosts, while Ashwin seemed to have gone back to his school days of playing basketball.
“It was great fun. I am very happy we could make it here. Exchanging thoughts about how the sports have transformed with the latest technology is always good. While I tried to explain to these guys how cricket is played, they in return taught me the finer details of basketball,” Dhawan said.
Bhuvneshwar said: “It was great to see these guys and learn about their game. I was impressed with the facilities here and it was a learning experience for me to see the amount of technology being used in sports science.” Speaking about his visit to the Miami Heat home arena, off-spinner Ashwin said: “I’ve played a bit of basketball during my school days so that got me really excited while I tried my hand again after so many years. I am thankful to both Weber and Johnson for taking time out and showing us around their home turf.”
