Mohali: Oct 18, 2013

Looking to build a lead after decimating the Australians at Jaipur, the Indian cricketers sweated it out at the nets during a training session at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium in Mohali on Friday, ahead of Saturday’s third One-Day International (ODI) against the tourists.

Led by captain MS Dhoni, the Indian players had a good three-hour training session.

They began their session with some drills in the ground and followed it up with a session at the nets under the blazing sun.

The trio of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan, who won the Jaipur game for India had a productive session, while the bowlers including pacer Ishant Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar also showed a lot of intensity at the practise.

By virtue of their emphatic win at Jaipur, India have leveled the best-of-seven series 1-1.

Unlike the two previous venues, dew is likely to play a role in Mohali on Saturday as heavy dew has been prevailing towards evening time.
