With the ongoing captaincy saga grabbing headlines ahead of the all-important South Africa tour, the fun session was a great way to relax for Team India members.
All the controversy after Kohli’s fiery pre-tour press conference seems to be in a thing of the past now as the Test captain was seen smiling and laughing while enjoying the game with his teammates and support staff members.
After a hard quarantine, the Indian team is scheduled to get to serious training before preparing themselves for the Boxing Day Test in Centurion.
Johannesburg will host the second Test from January 3 to 7, 2022 while the third and final match of the Test series will be played from January 11 to 15 in Cape Town.
