The Indian team has safely reached London ahead of the warm-up matches before the mega-event ‘Champions Trophy’ in England, starting on June 1. The Delhi duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli seemed to be at home despite being 6,700 km away home. It was not an ordinary sight that we see so often inside the team bus.
Dhawan and Kohli were seen pumping themselves up listening to some of the grooviest Bhangra songs before showing off what they could do off the field with their Bhangra moves. India is all set to face the Kiwi music in their first warm-up game before facing the arch-rivals Pakistan in the Champions Trophy.
Dhawan posted the video on his Facebook account, saying “Thats how we pump before d practise session , on our way to ground. @virat.kohli @rashwin99 .???????????”

Indian skipper Virat Kohli had earlier said in the pre-tournament conference that he is expecting a repeat performance from the team following the 2013 Champions Trophy heroics, where MS Dhoni and co pulled off a victory in the narrowest of margins. Kohli said, “England brings a lot of challenges for a batsman and I want to overcome them personally for my satisfaction at the end of my career.”
Meanwhile, opener Shikhar Dhawan returns to the squad following a long lay-off from the team due to some inconsistent performances from the moustache-man and the emergence of the 25-year-old opener from Karnataka KL Rahul.
KL Rahul replaced Shikar Dhawan in the squad with some brilliant outings against the major cricket playing nations before injuring his shoulder against the Australian side which ruled him initially out of the Indian Premier League before it worsened to a state that ruled the batsman out of the Champions Trophy.
If India manages to win the Champions Trophy this year, they will join the likes of Australia and West Indies to win the Champions Trophy of more than once.
