The Indian cricket team suffered one of its heaviest losses in Test cricket when they were demolished by Australia in the opening Test in Pune. The 333-run defeat brought an end to India's 19-match unbeaten run in Tests. With the second Test slated for March 4 in Bengaluru, Kohli and his teammates took a break from cricket by going trekking on Monday. The likes of Kohli, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane along with his wife and Ravindra Jadeja all posted pictures of the team outing on their social media handles.
 
While no other player mentioned the venue of the outdoor excursion, Jadeja tagged his location as the Tamhini Ghat Trek, which is situated about 80 km from Pune.
 
Kohli tweeted a picture of himself with a backpack, sitting atop a mountain with a picturesque background showcasing the entire range.

Ashwin, who had a moderate outing in Pune, shared a picture of himself and Tamil Nadu teammate Abhinav Mukund with a caption that read "Trekking".

A break from cricket might just be the thing that Kohli and his team needed after being outclassed in Pune.
