Virat Kohli bowling in the nets

ICC World Cup 2019: WATCH – Indian captain Virat Kohli bowls some off-cutters in the nets at Southampton

Team India has reached Southampton for their first game against South Africa which is scheduled to take place on June 5 at The Rose Bowl. Now, ahead of their first game the Indian team stepped out into the stadium and sweated it out in the nets.

On Thursday, captain Virat Kohli also devoted some time to his bowling ahead of batting in the nets. He decided to roll his arms over during the practice session at Southampton.

While Kohli’s seam-up deliveries are no secret to anybody, the 30 year-old was seen trying out off-cutters in nets.

Kohli doesn’t hold a good record with the ball but has proved it in the past that he can do a job if the situation arises.

In 228 one day internationals, Kohli has bowled 48 overs and picked up only 4 wickets.
