ICC World Cup 2019 | Team India Ditches Nets for Woods in Bonding Session

Members of the Indian cricket team seemed to be in a relaxed mood ahead of their opening ICC World Cup 2019 game against South Africa on Wednesday (June 5).

The BCCI's official Twitter account shared photos of the team going for a fun session of paintball in Southampton.

Virat Kohli also shared pictures from his account, calling it a fun day with the boys.

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, meanwhile, was having some fun of his own as he was spotted doing the hakka during the time when the team took some time off from their preparations to relax.

Earlier, Kohli was seen sharpening his bowling skills at the nets on Thursday at India's practice session in Southampton. The India skipper, who had earlier termed this tournament as one of the most difficult World Cups in history, seems to be leaving no stone unturned to prepare for the showpiece event.

It was a rare occasion on Thursday when Kohli, usually seen batting at the nets, rolled his arms as well. The run-machine was seen trying a few off-cutters in the nets.
