The video captioned “Two squads Fielding drills A run-through #TeamIndia’s fun drill, courtesy fielding coach @coach_rsridhar ahead of their practice session 👊 – by @RajalArora #ENGvIND.”
The 2-minute clip showed the boys involving direct hits, throwing accurately at the bowlers’ end to ensure smooth warm-up. The ‘Men in Blue’ then engaged in a light-hearted underarm ball throwing competition that attempted to probe players’ reflexes. The fielding coach asserted that the activity is often the mist underestimated practice.
The competition was won by the Virat Kohli contingent which also had Rohit Sharma. The opposition team comprising R Aswin and Cheteshwar Pujara mockingly blamed Sridhar for backing Kohli’s side in the competition.
The video concluded with final remarks from Sridhar who is quite happy with the practice proceedings of the Indian Team.
