Watch Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni sweat it out in the nets in Florida

Team India are set to live their big American dream when they step out at Lauder Hill, Florida to play their first-ever international game in the United States. The nation of dreams, last year, saw the Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne-incepted Cricket All-Stars being staged in various baseball stadiums. Unfortunately, cricket is not big in the biggest sporting nation (yes, count their Olympic medals) but with a sizeable south Asian expat population, the world’s second most followed sport is gradually gaining popularity and it will only grow with the  likes of Gayles, Dhonis and Kohlis set to rock at the greens in the US.
