Earlier today team India left for Ireland from England. The Indian team will face hosts Ireland in a two-match T20I series, starting June 27. And then will return back to England for the three T20Is and as many One-Day Internationals (ODIs) besides five-match Test series against the home side. Meanwhile, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli posted a selfie on his Twitter account before leaving for Ireland. However, a stranger photobombed the selfie and the Indian skipper was all cool about it.
“Off to Ireland with someone photobombing behind us!” wrote Kohli with a laughing and thumbs up emoticon. Kohli took the selfie with team India fast bowlers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Siddarth Kaul. Team India physiotherapist Patrick Farhart was also in the frame. Virat Kohli and Co Go Through 'Intense' Batting Session, Watch Video.
At first, it appears as if Kohli is pulling Umesh Yadav’s leg by calling him “someone”. However, a further look at the picture reveals a stranger actually photobombing the selfie. The stranger in the black tee is seen giving thumbs up.
Here’s Virat Kohli’s selfie which was photobombed!

Ever since landing in England, team India has been training hard. Last week we saw some of the team members sweating it out in the gym. Earlier, in the day BCCI shared a video of Indian batsmen like Kohli, Raina and MS Dhoni going through intense batting practice.
With conditions favouring bowlers, Indian batsmen are in for a challenge. Pressure is on Kohli to do well on the current England tour. Last time in 2014, the right-handed batsman managed to score just 134 runs in five Tests in England. With limited-overs fixtures preceding the Test matches, Kohli will have time to adapt to the conditions.
