The Indian Test team under the captaincy of Virat Kohli is touring England these days. A five-match Test series is to be played between India and England from August 4. Before this, from July 20, the Indian team has to play a three-day practice match against England’s County XI.
A day before this practice match, during team India’s practice session, there was a fun drill between team Kohli-Rohit and team Ashwin-Pujara. It was a fun drill under the supervision of fielding coach R Sridhar, in which Kohli-Rohit’s team won.
The video of the drill between the two teams has been posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on social media. Skipper Virat Kohli works hard a lot on his fitness and also inspires the rest of his teammates for the same.
In a video shared by BCCI, Sridhar said that this type of activity enhances sportsmanship among the players of the team and shows their level of fitness. Sridhar said that there was a very tough contest between the two teams, but in the end Kohli-Rohit’s team won.
The Indian team has started preparing for the Test series after a short break.

India has to play a practice match from July 20 to 22, after which the team has to play the first Test match in Nottingham from August 4.
