Virat Kohli expertly steers Jasprit Bumrah for a six in warm-up match

In the practice game against Leicestershire, Jasprit Bumrah, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant, and Prasidh Krishna are playing for the county team in order to ensure all members of India’s touring party get the desired game time ahead of the one-off Test against England at Edgbaston from July 1.

This arrangement pitted Virat Kohli and Bumrah against each other and the former Indian skipper steered the pace spearhead for an effortless six over third man. Having gauged the heavy length ball early, Kohli arched back ever-so-slightly to get underneath the ball and carve it as the red cherry flew over the off-side boundary for a maximum.
