Watch how Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Team India are training in South Africa

first_imgIndia’s practice session has been hampered by the rain but that didn’t dampen the spirit of Virat Kohli’s team on New Year’s Day.The team reached Cape Town on December 29 and has been seeing having fun since then. Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan was seen dancing on the streets to a local band on New Year’s eve. The bowlers were seen sweating it out while Rohit Sharma posted a photo from the last session of 2017.However, due to rain, the team was forced to shift indoors and work on their skills and make the most of what they could according to Rohit.”It has been a wonderful days in Cape Town and it’s a beautiful place to play cricket. Because of the rain we have not been able to go outdoors but we need to make the most of whatever facility we have got. So we are indoors,” Rohit said.We started off playing with a little bit of football to warm up. We all love coming here and playing cricket as I said it’s a wonderful place. We have to make whatever we have got. Today we are here indoors, working on skills as we know it’s not going to be easy here. Different conditions, different ball game. Myself, Vijay and Pujara are going to be batting after this lot,” he added.As Rohit turned guide, he gave everyone a tour of what was happening in Team India’s net sessions indoor. KL Rahul, who could well play the first Test in Shikhar Dhawan’s absence due to an ankle injury, was seen taking throwdowns from the specialist Raghu. Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli meanwhile practiced under the watchful eyes of R Shridhar and Sanjay Bangar respectively — who were bowling to them.advertisementThe whole coaching unit, including head coach Ravi Shastri, was seen working on the team and some players individually and Rohit didn’t stop short of complimenting them.”We have got our wonderful coaches who are looking after the proceedings. Sridhar is at the bowling machine. Raghu, the throwdown specialist in net No. 2, always challenging batsmen, never gives away nothing away and net 3 has our batting coach Sanjay Bangar and Mr. Ravi Shastri basically trying to work on individual skill set of every player,” said the Mumbaikar.Something that really sent Rohit laughing was Murali Vijay speaking to bowling coach Bharat Arun with great concentration. Seeing that, a giggling Rohit said: “There we have Bharat Arun talking to Murali Vijay and I think Vijay is looking for some bowling tips there. Ashwin is there as well.”He signed off by wishing everyone a happy new year from Team India.”On behalf of the team we wish you the greatest of 2018. 2017 has been wonderful for all of us. So I wish 2018 will be even wonderful,” Rohit signed off.Earlier, Kohli had said after the outdoor practice session on Saturday, “If you look at the wicket that we are practicing on right now then it is not even 15 per cent of what we are going to get in the game so we understand that.”There is no point wasting two days in which guys go out and score quick fifties and come out. We would rather have them do two sessions like today and get into the Test match zone and test ourselves. We can try and prepare the wicket the way we want to but if you are playing a two-day game then there is no room for changing the wicket at different times of the day.”The Indian team management had earlier cancelled their one-off two-day practice game and instead decided to hold extended practice sessions to gear up for the Test series but those preparations have not been ideal with the pitch not being up to the mark.   India will play three Tests, six ODIs and three T20Is in their tour of South Africa. The first Test starts on January 5 at the Newlands.ALSO WATCH:last_img read more
