New Delhi: India skipper Virat Kohli has always believed in keeping the bonhomie alive in the team. Having risen through the ranks at a young age, Kohli understands the need to make the youngsters in the team feel at home.

And on Tuesday, Kohli was seen bonding with opener KL Rahul and all-rounders Hardik Pandya and Jayant Yadav over breakfast in Hyderabad.

The Indian team is currently preparing for the one-off Test against Bangladesh that starts at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Uppal from Thursday.

He took to Twitter and Instagram to post a picture from the breakfast table that read: “Breakfast with the boys ✌🏻Good sunny day in Hyderabad 👌🏻🌞 Have a great day all of you 😎 With @klrahul11 @hardikpandya7 & Jayant Yadav”.

Not just Kohli, even chief coach Anil Kumble has time and again emphasised on the need to keep the boys together as it is a young team that has oodles of talent.

“The players are all great friends off the field, which is really nice to know. The camaraderie in this side is something I am really impressed with,” Kumble had said after the tour of West Indies.

In fact, after Kohli lifted the trophy at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, having defeated England 4-0 in the five-match series, the injured boys were asked to join the squad as both the skipper and coach Kumble wanted everyone to be a part of the celebration.

Both Kohli and Kumble have time and again said that it is important that the team bonds off the field if it has to succeed on it.
