Virat Kohli-led India underwent a gruelling gym session on the day they landed in the United Kingdom, where they are scheduled to play Ireland and then England in all three formats. The Board Of Control For Cricket In India's (BCCI) Twitter handle on Sunday uploaded pictures of Virat Kohli and other members of the cricket team going through a rigorous gym session. There was also a video in which captain Virat Kohli can be seen running on a treadmill with a mask on.

Apart from Kohli, Manish Pandey, spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, KL Rahul and Suresh Raina can been seen working out in the gym.

India are scheduled to play two T20Is against Ireland and three T20Is, three ODIs and five Tests against England.

Kohli had a phenomenal 2016-17 season, where he amassed 1,332 runs in 13 Tests at a brilliant average of 74, while he averaged 84.22 for his 1,516 runs in 27 ODIs during the period. In the six Tests played in the 2017-18 seasons, Kohli scored 896 runs at an average of 89.6, while ODI average stands at 75.50.

Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri had addressed the media in a pre-departure press conference in New Delhi.

Kohli, who was ruled out from participating in the County championship for Surrey CCC in the month of June, insisted that he is fully fit and ready to face new challenges.

"I wanted to experience the conditions in England, but in hindsight, I'm glad I didn't go there while I wasn't fully fit. It's better to be even 90 percent fit and skip. I am at 110 percent and ready to go," Kohli said about his fitness.
