After almost two months without any cricketing activities, Virat Kohli, on Friday, put on his running shoes for a short outdoor session at his Mumbai residence. In a couple of videos on his Instagram page, Kohli could be seen running on a greenery space on the rooftop of the building he lives in. But running wasn’t the only thing Kohli did. He was also involved in a short knockdown session with wife Anushka Sharma and it looks like the Indian captain used the time to get the feeling of touching the ball to bat again by playing gully cricket. Kohli last played in the Test series in New Zealand before cricket and most other sporting events were suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Virat Kohli’s Running Video at His Residence Will Inspire You to Be Fit Amid COVID-19 Lockdown.

Surprisingly, the first delivery bowled by Anushka was a bouncer which was well defended by Kohli, She then followed it with a widish full delivery which was almost out of Kohli’s reach. But the 31-year-old somehow got to the ball and played it. From what it looked like, the Indian skipper many have got bored sitting without playing the game for the last two months and decided to get back to batting again.
