Watching Rahul Dravid & Virat Kohli Bond Over Practice Session Makes Fans Love The Duo




Indian captain for Test cricket, Virat Kohli and could be seen stress free and in the middle of his squad enjoying a day of not-so-intensive workout after landing in South Africa and acclimatising to the surroundings.

In a video recently shared by the official Twitter account of the BCCI, the squad can be seen playing footvolley, going for a run and conducting a stretching session in the resort where they will be spending the next month and a half while participating in three Tests and as many ODIs in December and January.

According to Soham Desai, the strength and conditioning coach for the Men in Blue, the team had three days of hard quarantining back in Mumbai followed by a 10-hour flight to the land of the Proteas and another hard-quarantine day in South Africa.

Desai suggested that it wasn’t feasible to start rigorous training from the first day as everyone was also feeling fatigued and needed some time before proper workouts sessions could be held. The difference in elevation levels between South Africa and India is also significant. According to the coach, while India was at sea level, the place where they will be residing is 1400 meters above sea level.

In the rather wholesome video, the boys could be seen laughing, sharing hugs and competing with each other. However, according to the fans, the greatest scenes took place between Virat Kohli and his head coach Rahul Dravid.

Despite the two being in different teams during a session of footvolley, the two were seen sharing a genuine bonding that goes a long way behind the success of a team, especially in games like cricket that is heavily based on the relationship between important decision-makers and role players.

Fans were extremely happy after seeing Virat Kohli finally having a good time, especially after the fiery press conference that he had given just a day before leaving for South Africa which could possibly lead him into a lot of trouble with the BCCI and its president, Sourav Ganguly.

Happy #ViratKohli, Happy World..
