The Indian cricket team, excluding the players who are currently a part of the ongoing Indian Premier League season, has started training ahead of the World Test Championship final that is set to take place at the Oval in England. The match against Australia will kick off on June 7 and the Indian players are making sure they leave no stone unturned in their attempt for a maiden title. The BCCI on Friday uploaded a video on social media in which the likes of Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur and Umesh Yadav could be seen doing a ‘fun drill’ and the end was just hilariously perfect.
It was a funny drill for catching practice and Axar Patel fell behind in the end to add more fun to it.
