After a long break, the Indian team was seen sweating it out in the nets ahead of the three-day-long practice game in Durham. Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and other members of the team were seen in the nets. The Hitman posted a picture of himself in the nets and let out his inner commentator. The snap had an interesting caption in Hindi, ""हाथ में बल्ला और बल्ले के बीच से निकली गेंद… इस्का ही अलग है! (Bat in hand and the ball getting struck from the middle of the bat...This is a different feeling altogether).
