With less than a week left before the start of the World Testing Championship (WTC) finals, Indian star batsman Virat Kohli hit the net on Friday to get into the rhythm ahead of the all-important clash with Australia. Kohli had a brilliant season at bat in the recently concluded Indian Premier League where, with the help of two centuries, he scored 639 points in 14 matches. The 34-year-old has been in great shape with the bat lately. He will look to keep that form going into the WTC final against Australia.
“Concentrate. Virat Kohli getting ready for the #WTC23 final,” ICC signed a Twitter post.
