As we all know India is all set to play against England in the 5-match Test series that will begin on August 1 at Edgbaston, we saw Virat Kohli and Co. warming up by playing a 3-day practice match against Essex in Chelmsford.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go as per their plan due to the heavy downpour as skipper King Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan were enjoying their last day at the county also entertaining the whole crowd in Chelmsford by doing the Bhangra to the beats of the dhol.

Well, Indian cricketers were welcomed onto the ground to the sound of Dhol when Chiku(Virat) and Gabbar(Shikhar) had put their dancing shoes on to showcase their killer Bhangra moves.

In the match, India couldn’t dismiss Essex in 94 overs as the encounter ended in a draw after rain delayed the match. Well, the Essex declared on 359 for 8. Well, the rain came with KL Rahul 36 not out and Rahane 19 not out after Dhawan was dismissed by Matthew Quinn for 0 and Pujara was caught behind for 23.
On Day 1, Murali Vijay, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, and KL Rahul had scored some fine half-centuries to take India to a respectable total of 395. Well, the fans were a bit disappointed with the batsmen as they couldn’t deliver up to the expectations.
It seems that the young Indian squad is having a great time in England. A few days ago, the swashbuckling Indian opener shared a picture with Kohli on Instagram. On seeing them, we get reminded of this song, Tere jaisa yaar kahan, Kahan aisa yaarana, Yaad karegi duniya, Tera mera afsana, Check out the pic:
Ahead of the series, the team needs to work on their form to tackle England’s dangerous bowling attack in the Test series starting in Birmingham on Wednesday.
