Virat Kohli sweated profusely in the net session

IND vs SA 2nd Test Match: The second and last match of the Test series between India and South Africa will be played at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town. Team India has intensified its preparations for this match. On the first day of the New Year, Indian players sweated profusely in the nets. During this, Virat Kohli practiced with an unknown player to deal with African fast bowlers.

Kohli broke African bowling

India’s star batsman Virat Kohli was seen facing the bowling style of Africa’s left-arm fast bowler Nandre Berger in the net session. On New Year’s Day, Kohli sweated profusely during the net session and practiced for almost an hour. Kohli faced throwdowns for about 20 to 25 minutes after facing the bowlers at the nets. Let us tell you that Burger had taken seven wickets in the initial test in Centurion.

Unknown player made Virat practice

Kohli is known to enter the nets with a specific target of practice and on Monday, he was practicing batting against left-arm fast bowling. There is no left-arm fast bowler in the Indian team, so a net bowler was called and Kohli faced 25 to 30 balls from him while in between he also practiced against Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Ravichandran Ashwin and Avesh Khan. The only problem here, however, was that the pace bowler provided by Cricket South Africa was at least 15 kmph slower than Berger.

Iyer again fails against the short ball

Iyer’s weakness against the short ball is well known. His shortcomings were once again exposed against the bouncing balls in the Centurion Test. Iyer appears to be in trouble while facing balls coming slightly above his waist. He looked uncomfortable while batting during the training session and when Sri Lanka’s left-arm throwdown specialist Nuwan Senaviratne bowled the ball from 18 yards, Iyer reacted late in trying to pull and the ball hit him in the stomach. He stopped batting for a while and looked in pain.
