India vs Sri Lanka: Virat Kohli Works Out With the Man He Calls 'The Boss'

A healthy body leads to a healthy mind, this old adage fits the bill for Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, who has mentioned several times how working on his fitness actually helped him take his game to the next level as a batsman.

Even during the ICC Champions Trophy he thanked the Indian team's strength and conditioning coach Shankar Basu for the behind the scenes work that he does, not only with Kohli, with the team and gets them in shape for the rigours of international cricket.

And the Indian captain recently posted a photograph on his twitter account with Basu, with the caption 'Workout with the Boss!'.

Shankar Basu was recently offered a new two-year contract along with the other support staff members that will see him train the Indian men's cricket team till the 2019 ICC World Cup. The road ahead is pretty tough for the team as they travel outside the sub-continent to play important series, which many say would be the ultimate test of Virat Kohli's captaincy.

Kohli for now is enjoying a good time with the Indian team having already won the first Test against Sri Lanka
