‘Master at work’: Watch Virat Kohli sweat in net ahead of 5th England Test


Ahead of India’s rescheduled fifth Test match against England, the spotlight has been on Virat Kohli who is eager to return to the Indian squad after being rested against South Africa.

While Kohli failed to impress with the bat at IPL 2022 as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) reached the IPL 2022 qualifiers, he was later rested for the five game T20I against South Africa. The 33-year-old took advantage of this break to fly to the Maldives for a short vacation with his wife Anushka Sharma and their daughter Vamika.

According to latest reports, Virat tested positive for Covid-19 after returning from the Maldives, however, he is believed to have recovered from the virus.

Before that, however, the Men in Blue, managed by Rohit Sharma, will play a practice match against Leicestershire Foxes from June 24-28.

County have shared videos and photos of the Indian players’ training sessions, and recently they shared a video of King Kohli sweating it out in the net.

The rescheduled fifth Test will now be played at Edgbaston, after which the two teams will face off in a three-game T20I series, followed by an ODI series of as many games.
