Virat Kohli is gearing up for the day and night Test match against England at Ahmedabad. With the Test match still a few days away Kohli has decided to keep his batting aside and focus on strength training. As soon as the Indian team arrived at the new stadium in Ahmedabad, Kohli led the way for team India as they trained with full intensity.
As we all know Kohli is a huge fitness freak and likes to get into his zone by performing compound lifts in the gym. It allows the Indian captain to perform better on the field as lifting weights increases his endurance and stamina. The Indian captain has created a fitness culture within the Indian side and all players now train like professional athletes before any match.

The visitors stunned the hosts in the opening Test whereas Kohli and his men bounced back in style and won the second Test by a big margin. Kohli is now eyeing another victory as it will take team India closer to the ICC world Test championship final.
