IND vs ENG, 3rd Test: Virat Kohli & Co, Joe Root-led England undergo final practice session ahead of Headingley Test- Team India and England on Tuesday underwent their final practice session ahead of the upcoming third Test at Headingley, Leeds. Out of form batsman Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane spent a fair amount of time at the nets. They will look to play big innings in the upcoming Test. While Kohli has failed to hit a half-century in the last 7 innings, Pujara had last slammed fifty 12 innings ago. However, he struck a crucial 45 in the second innings of the Lord’s Test.

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal also took turns during the practice session to sharpen their game ahead of the third Test.
