India vs Australia: Virat Kohli & Co opt for rest, to not practice before December 23

The Indian cricket team coach Ravi Shastri hinted at ditching net practice ahead of the second Test match in Perth and it seems that the visitors will be following that example once ahead of the third encounter in Melbourne.

According to a report in the Mumbai Mirror, the Indian cricket team has opted to take an extended rest and they will not be practising till December 23. That means that Virat Kohli & Co will hit the nets for just three days ahead of their Boxing Day Test match against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

“They have to rest up, to hell with the nets. You just come there, mark your attendance and get away to the hotel. We know the Perth track is quick, it’s a drop in surface, there will be something there for the fast bowlers,” Shastri earlier said.
