The Indian team who will soon embark on a tough challenge down have landed on the Australian shores for a long tour which will consist of 3 T20Is, 4 Test matches and 3 ODIs. Many experts and fans alike have recognized that this is the best opportunity for a young and talented Indian squad to come back home with series victories to their name with the Australian team going through a big period of transition. This Australian team is not as formidable as their predecessors and are without two of their star players, Steve Smith and David Warner who are serving their year-long suspension for ball-tampering.
All eyes will be on Virat Kohli as India’s star player and he will be looking forward to continuing his dominating run as a batsman in Australia where his record is nothing short of outstanding. Sensing the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which lies ahead, Virat Kohli has gotten down to slugging it out in the gym along with his peers.
Virat Kohli is a known fitness maniac and he has started instilling a similar mentality in the team. A proof of that is the video which the skipper posted on his Instagram, sweating it out in the gym with a player who has been identified as the future of Indian cricket, wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant. Kohli and Pant could be seen putting in the hard yards, working on their cardio on the treadmill in a gym in Australia.
Kohli wrote in the caption of his post, “There’s no ideal way to put in hard work. Everyday is an opportunity. Stay fit stay healthy!”
Here is the video which Kohli posted:
Hopefully, the hard work pays off and the team returns home bringing glory to the nation.
