Virat Kohli and Co. must be feeling like the wounded tigers after their forgettable bashing against the visitors, Australia. India are trailing 1-0, but Virat Kohli has vouched to make a comeback. Virat Kohli soon headed to the hills after the match, in a quest to unwind ahead of the second Test and keep the negativity out of the system. Team Australia is also wary of the fact that India will make a comeback, some of their players have come out and asked to beware of complacency.
Virat Kohli was up early to hit the Chinnaswamy stadium ahead of the high-octane clash between the two cricketing giants. Virat Kohli was seen hitting balls at the net. Kohli was taking throw downs and was seen knocking the ball straight on most occasions and at times the off-drive was brought out.
This net session will be good for the team in order to keep them in good stead. This will give them a good feel of the conditions and a rough idea of the bounce and the nature of the pitch. Coming into the series, Team India were riding on a high, a 19-Test unbeaten streak to be precise. As they say, when you hurt a tiger, beware of the consequences.

Rightly we expect not an inch to be given by any team, considering the high stakes India-Australia battles always have. All this aside, Virat Kohli’s current form will be a cause of concern for the entire dressing room. On the other hand, Steven Smith has upped the ante as a captain, leading from the front.
