During the session, Rahul and Dinesh Karthik faced Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal in the nets. Karthik also practised throw-downs with Kohli. Everything happened under the watchful eyes of Head coach Rahul Dravid and batting coach Vikram Rathour.
Rahul and Rohit played some crisp drives and looked in good touch which will reduce management’s concerns over the openers’ form slump. Rohit who failed to play a critical knock against Pakistan on Sunday had an intense extended practice in the nets. Rishabh Pant was also seen playing some measured shots in the nets.
The likes of Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya skipped the practice session in order to take rest. The bowlers meanwhile bowled the hard lengths in nets, Yuzvendra Chahal also rolled his arm over as did Ravichandran Ashwin.
However, the star pacers of the team Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh decided to skip the practice session ahead of the match against the Netherlands.
India will play the Netherlands next, with the match scheduled for October 27 at the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground. (ANI)
