New Delhi: Having enjoyed a much-deserved break with girlfriend Anushka Sharma in New York, India skipper Virat Kohli is back in the country and looking to get back into the grind as the team gears up for the upcoming challenge against Sri Lanka in the Island Nation. India will play three Test matches, five ODIs and a T20I. The team is set to leave for Colombo on Wednesday.

Returning to India, Kohli took to Twitter and wrote: “Back to the grind again. 🏋️🏏”




Kohli is known to be a fitness addict and it came as no surprise that one of the emoticon was that of weightlifting. In fact, he is so conscious of his fitness that it has even rubbed off on his teammates. Interestingly, just before the first Test between India and New Zealand last season, the players had requested for a high protein and low fat diet in the dressing room.

Back to his trip to New York, Kohli was seen having a blast with Anushka as they not only roamed the streets of the city, but also went out on breakfast dates, sight-seeing and grocery shopping. Clearly, the break was all about de-stressing after the long season where Indian players were a part of the Indian Premier League, the Champions Trophy in England and Wales and then the short limited-overs series against West Indies in the Caribbean Islands.
