Earlier, during the team’s practice session, Kohli was seen practising with the spinners but later moved on to face the pace attack in the nets. Apart from Kohli, Dhawan and Dhoni too spent time in the nets enhancing their skills.

 

Bowlers were seen improving their bowling attack. Bhuvneshwar Kumar experimented on his pace and swing alone in the nets. Whereas, India team head coach Ravi Shastri, who was there for the whole session, guided Kumar on how to bowl according to the wicket conditions.

However, spinner Kuldeep Yadav skipped the practice session as he was not well.
