As far as Team India is currently concerned, its primary task at hand is to tame New Zealand in the all-important 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship final, to be played at the Rose Bowl in Southampton from Friday. On the same note, the Indians are leaving no stones unturned and are sweating it out in the nets, both with the bat and the ball.

The Indians took part in another nets session at the venue on Monday. In a video shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, skipper Virat Kohli was seen batting as he played some of his favourite strokes, including the straight and cover drives. He also faced a few bouncers, while he was surprised by one of them and went down ducking it. Nevertheless, he pulled the following one back.

Among the other batsmen to practice was wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane. While Pant was seen batting comfortably against pacers Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj and Ishant Sharma, the latter was seen giving some tips regarding the ball's movement to him. Similarly, Rahane faced the corresponding bowlers and played some straight drives.

The Indians also took part in an intra-squad warm-up game earlier, where opener Shubman Gill played a healthy knock over 80, while Pant scored an unbeaten century. Here are some of the videos from the same, shared by the BCCI.
