Both Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara join practice for the finals of WTC 2023 against Australia

Batting star Virat Kohli joined the national team training session on Monday for the WTC Finals against Australia at the picturesque Arundel Castle Cricket Club along with left-arm seamer Jaydev Unadkat, who seemed to have recovered from a left shoulder injury. Team India will take on Australia at the Oval from June 7 to 11. On Monday, the BCCI shared pictures on their official Twitter handle of the members of the team, including Kohli and the pace duo of Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj. Rohit Sharma was absent from the pictures, as it is expected that he is going to join training on Tuesday.

The BCCI said in a tweet, "Team India members begin their preparations for the WTC23 at Arundel Castle Cricket Club." While Kohli, Umesh, and Siraj were seen jogging in their new training kit, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin could be seen rolling his arm over at the nets.

Unadkat was also engaged in a discussion with head coach Rahul Dravid and bowling coach Paras Mhambrey. Cheteshwar Pujara, who has been playing for Sussex in the English county circuit to prepare for the final, was also seen arriving at the training ground. Umesh and Shardul Thakur were among the first batch of Indian players to arrive for the WTC final.
