Kohli too batted with determination for close to 45 minutes before heading to the ground for some catching practice. His performance will be crucial to India's chances, as it was the case against Pakistan.
Pressure will be on openers Rohit and Dhawan to give India a good start after having tough outings in the earlier games. Suresh Raina is another batsman who will be eager to perform after scores of 30, 0, 1.
The bowlers who spent most time in the nets were Ashish Nehra, Harbhajan Singh and injury prone Mohammad Shami.
