More importantly, the likes of KL Rahul and Virat Kohli will spend long hours at the nets. The former India captain has been struggling with runs at the middle so he can make good use of the nets sessions in Dubai to get back to form.

Kohli had in fact started his training back in Mumbai itself. As far as Rahul is concerned, the heat is going to test him with the player having recently recovered from Covid-19. However, both the players will be eager to get some good batting hours in the lead upto the Asia Cup.

Others including Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma, Arshdeep Singh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will also be involved in the first training session.
