New Delhi: Ever since Anil Kumble has stepped in as the coach of Indian Cricket team, he has asserted his innovative techniques to improve the players' level. After a day of Yoga sessions, Kumble took the whole team to Alur, a place 40 km away from Bangalore, for a unique challenge.
The players were first made to wear the white test kits instead of the usual training kits. The challenge was to bat without getting out for '1 hour', and for the ballers to get maximum wickets.
It would be fair to say that the bowlers did not want the batsmen to succeed in the challenge.
Test captain Virat Kohli got out twice in one hour, both times to Ravindra Jadega, while Shikhar Dhawan and Murli Vijay also succumbed to the challenge.
Ajinkya Rahane was the only batsmen to survive Jumbo's 'One-hour challenge'.
It can clearly be seen that the Indian cricket team, who has been busy playing T20 cricket for the past 6 months has a long way to go, before setting themselves up for the Test cricket season they are set to begin in West Indies.
