The Indian cricket team is in New Zealand for a month and half long tour which begins with a five-match T20 international series on Friday. Ahead of the series Indian captain Virat Kohli and his teammates are having some time off.
Captain Kohli took to Twitter and posted a photograph of himself with a few of his teammates with the message,”Top team gym session and a good meal out in beautiful Auckland.” He was accompanied by Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul and Manish Pandey.
The five-match series will allow the Indian team management to further experiment with different choices as the team looks to lock in spots for the ICC T20 World Cup. This will also be good exposure for the team as the showpiece event will be played in Australia, which will have similar conditions as in New Zealand.

India are keen to break their jinx of not winning the title since being crowned WT20 champions in 2007, the year of its inception.
