Indian Cricket team skipper, Virat Kohli recently posed with the doppelganger of the business tycoon, Vijay Mallya during the three-day practise game against Essex at Chelmsford.

Meanwhile, India had a tough time leading up to the five-match Test series against England. However, they will be glad that their middle-order got some runs under their belt.

But the form of Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara will keep them thinking. On the bowling front, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma had a good game. They are among the wickets which will reduce the worries of Virat Kohli.

Furthermore, Ravichandran Ashwin sustained a minor during the game but will take part in the opener.

However, India will miss Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. While Kumar is out for the first three Tests, Bumrah will be available from the second.

On the other hand, Virat Kohli had a good outing getting some runs under his belt. He scored 68 off 93 balls including 12 boundaries. Kohli, meanwhile, will be desperate to put on a good show this time in England. He had a horrid time, the last time he toured England in 2014.

Virat Kohli managed to score only 134 runs from ten innings, as James Anderson troubled him on the challenging pitches.

The three-day practice match ended in a stalemate with the Indian team getting some good practice. Post the match, Kohli was spotted with a doppelganger of Vijay Mallya.

Meanwhile, Mallya is charged with a plethora of accusations. He absconded from India following his controversial money fraud of thousands of crore rupees. Moreover, Mallya is also the former owner of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), where Virat Kohli is the skipper.

The Indian Cricket team shared the picture from their official Instagram account.
