Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli reportedly practice sweep shots in nets ahead of Border-Gavaskar Trophy
India is all set to host Australia for the four-match Test series. The first game between the nations will be played on February 9th in Nagpur followed by the second Test to be played on 17th February in Delhi.
The third game between India and Australia is slated to take place on 1st March in Dharamshala whereas the last game will be played on 9th March in Ahmedabad.
The series will extremely be crucial in the context of the World Test Championship as it’ll decide the finalists. Both the teams have been staggering in the longest format of the game and are currently first (Australia) and second (India) on the points table, separated by the barest of margins.
While India is unbeaten at home since last decade, Australia under Pat Cummins is an extremely dangerous side to face as they are yet to lose a series, winning both at home as well as overseas. If the Rohit Sharma-led side wins the series then it is likely that both sides will face in the final of the World Test Championship as well and also they will acquire the No.1 spot in the ICC rankings.
Both teams are leaving no stone unturned in their preparations and have started their training ahead of the first game. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have taken the practice to the next session as it is learned according to reports in Indian Express that the duo are practising sweep shots and are grinding really hard.

I don’t actually know why people are saying Australia is favorite for BGT.
India has better spinners:- Kuldeep, Ash, Jaddu, Axar
Better batsman on Indian pitches:- Kohli, Rohit, Pujara, Gill etc.

Kohli sweeping will be a great sight. It’s not the most elegant but very productive.

Brilliant thoughts by @imVkohli and @ImRo45 because rank turner pitches in this series so play sweep shot is very good thought.
