The video clearly shows that Kumble was sending sidearm throws downs to the skipper who was fending it. There were no signs of any off between the two, which somehow put aside all the rumours of any clash between the two.
A rain in Edgbaston forced team India to be locked in and have an indoor practice session. During the session, most of the batsmen were seen facing side down throws to counter Pakistan pacers.
India have always opted for special preparation before facing Pakistan as ahead of 2015 World Cup clash as well, we saw Indian batsmen facing deliveries bowled by the coach, who was standing on a table. The innovative technique was opted to counter Mohammad Irfan, who stands 7ft 1 inches tall.
Amidst all this, the video of Kohli and Kumble practising in one single net has come as a good news for the Indian fans as earlier today, there were reports that Kohli left a net session ahead of the practice game against Bangladesh as soon as Kumble entered. By sharing nets with Kumble, Kohli has put all the rumours aside, putting the whole concentration on the crunch game against Pakistan.
India kick off their Champions Trophy campaign against Pakistan on June 4 at Edgbaston.
