Virat Kohli went paint-balling with some his team-mates and staff, days before India open their World Cup campaign against South Africa.
To lighten things up, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni and reserve player Deepak Chahar went out for a game of paintball in Southampton on Friday.
The players looked fresh in their approach as they prepare for the game at Southampton.
Paint Ball is a very famous sport in Southampton, with more than 50 venues to play the game. The players went to the Delta Force Paint Ball arena, which is surrounded by woods.
As it was a last Friday of Ramadan, Mohammed Shami didn’t go with the team as he went to read the holy Namaz. After returning from there he was seen in a jovial mood outside the team hotel. He got surprised to know that Pakistan got out on just 105 runs.
Captain Kohli posted a picture on twitter after their paint-balling session.

Virat-led Indian Cricket team were quick to hit the nets, with special session with fielding coach, R. Sridhar.
Despite, starting their preparations for the World Cup on a bad note against New Zealand, India bounced back in style to beat Bangladesh by 95 runs.
Furthermore, Virat bowled in the nets, before padding up to face bowlers at the Ageas Bowl.
After the defeat at the hands of New Zealand, Kohli looked sharp against Bangladesh, but missed out on a 50 by 3 runs.
The Men in Blue would love to start their campaign on a high note. Although, South Africa will also look to bounce back after their defeat against host England, yesterday.
South Africa were the only team that defeated India on-route to their triumph in 2011.
