Ahead of the two-Test series against Bangladesh that gets underway from Thursday, India skipper Virat Kohli was spotted taking throwdowns. And he wasn’t taking them from his teammates or the support staff at the Holkar Stadium.
Away from the Holkar, a few lucky kids got the chance of a lifetime as they helped the Indian cricket team captain prepare for the first Test.
In a video that has surfaced on the social space, Kohli can be seen playing with kids at a residential complex in Indore.
Dressed in jeans and a casual shirt, Kohli plays a couple of shots – the first one, he square cuts the ball on the off-side, whereas he comes down the track and hits it over the bowlers head. After that, the kids start chasing Kohli as he looks to run away with the bat before handing it over to a kid. It seems the video was captured during an ad shoot in which Kohli and the kids were part of.
Meanwhile, Kohli will be leading India in the upcoming two-match series against Bangladesh.
After the series opener, the two teams will play the 2nd Test under lights from November 22 in Kolkata.
India, at home, will start overwhelming favourites.
Earlier, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, India beat Bangladesh 2-1 in the three-match T20I series from which Kohli was rested. Deepak Chahar for his splendid effort with the ball bagged both the man of the match and the series awards.
