In the video, Rohit says, "You can see in net no 1 there is Ajinkya Rahane, net no 2 has (KL) Rahul and net no 3 has Virat (Kohli)."
Virat was tended to by batting coach Sanjay Bangar and head coach Ravi Shastri. On the sidelines, Murali Vijay was in gear conversing with Bharat Arun. "I'm sure Vijay is looking for some bowling tips there," says Rohit, breaking into laughter.
The team was forced to practice indoors due to rain and were still seen sweating it out as Kohli prepares for what is the biggest challenge of his captaincy so far.
