  • Rohit Sharma, R Jadeja, Shreyas Iyer & Ishan Kishan were seen acing their batting skills.
  • Rahul Dravid spent quality time with the players and seen guiding them in a group.
  • Venkatesh Iyer bowled during the nets after his impressive allround show against West Indies.
  • Kuldeep Yadav was also keen at the nets ahead of the T20I at home ground in Lucknow.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohd Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah were seen working on their bowling.

Meanwhile, India vice-captain Jasprit Bumrah was seen in full flow while sweating it out in the practice session after his comeback. He was rested for the white-ball series against West Indies at home.

“There is no substitute for hard work,” Jasprit Bumrah wrote on the micro-blogging website along with multiple pictures.

After whitewashing West Indies by a 3-0 margin in both T20I and ODI formats recently, Rohit Sharma’s men are now gearing up to take on the Lankan Lions. The two neighbouring nations will lock horns in three T20Is and two Test matches, with the first T20I set to be staged at Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium on Thursday, 24th February.

The men in blue arrived at Lucknow on Monday and have already started their practice. On the other hand, the Dasun Shanaka-led team arrived at the city on Tuesday morning and are likely to hit the nets soon.
