On the penultimate day of the Indian🇮🇳 cricket team's preparation camp , the squad was put through a Test cricket🏏 simulation exercise by their new coach Anil Kumble👔. In an open ground, each batsman had to negotiate a trio of fast bowlers⚡ and a trio of spinners💫 for half an hour each. Every batsman was given the benefit of playing with a life💡.
Openers Vijay and Dhawan faced Umesh Yadav, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma followed by 30 minutes of Amit Sharma, Ashwin & Jadeja. The method highlighted Dhawan's fallibility outside the off stump. Kohli⭐ handled pace quite well but strangely struggled😖 against the left-arm spin of Jadeja😮. Rohit Sharma didn't have a particularly good session while Pujara and Rahane were impressive👍.
Addressing the press after the session, Kumble said🔈, "As a coach, you want the team to win and prepare them to the best of their ability. To ensure that all areas are covered. Skill-wise as well as strategy-wise so that they are able to assess any situation and find a solution on their own." He also assured that Ashwin's injury on his right arm was "not very serious"😃.
