With the series already in the bag, the third ODI in Kolkata will provide the Kohli and co. a chance to go for a whitewash. Thanks to the hectic schedule, both Kohli and Yuvraj decided to give the training session on Saturday a miss. Meanwhile, while former skipper MS Dhoni was seen warming up in the nets. He was seen bowling and stretching out.
Mahi has been often seen bowling to the batsmen at net sessions earlier as well. Nine Indian players came for training and Ashwin decided to take a well-deserved rest as well.
Before leaving for Kolkata for the third ODI against England, star cricketer Yuvraj Singh on Friday spent time with children afflicted with cancer and autism at a hotel.
Yuvraj, who entertained scores of cricket lovers with his explosive innings at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack on Thursday, also made children smile and laugh for some time.
Two former cricketers from the state, Debashish Mohanty and Shiv Sundar Das, facilitated the meeting of the children with Yuvraj.
