Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer left awestruck as Virat Kohli bats in the nets - watch video

Virat Kohli

India got off to a disappointing start to the T20 World Cup after a 10-wicket defeat to Pakistan. But, with a postive attitude the team aims to make a big comeback with the next match against New Zealand on 31 October. After a loss against Pakistan, the players took a break of two days before hitting the nets on Wednesday.

With great determination, the Indian team ensures no stone remains unturned in the practice session. Skipper Virat Kohli took the limelight after his brilliant shots during the net session that left his teammates - Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer, awestruck.

The ICC shared a video of the duo witnessing Kohli's brilliance from one side of the nets. The video shows Virat Kohli responding to every ball while Shreyas and Ishan looked speechless and even applauded between back-to-back throwdowns. Ishan was also seen shadow practicing Kohli's shots.

Kohli remained the highest scorer for India with a splendid half-century against Pakistan and will hope to continue his form when India face NZ in sort of a must-win game. A defeat at this stage can have a major impact on India's qualification chances.
