Virat Kohli Viral video: A video has surfaced on social media in which star batter Virat Kohli can be seen giving drinks to his teammates during India’s warm-up game against Western Australia. Virat wasn’t part of India’s playing XI for both warm-up games against Australia. The video that has now surfaced on social media is most likely from India’s 1st warm-up game against Australia as Virat had fielded during the second practice match. India vs Western Australia warm-up games, organised by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), were not streamed live or televised, but someone from the crowd might have recorded the video.
Team India won one out of two practice games they played against Western Australia to adapt to Australian condtions ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022. The Men in Blue outclassed Western Australia in 1st warm-up match but faced a crushing defeat in the second fixture.
Rohit Sharma-led Indian contingent landed in Brisbane on Saturday, where they will play two warm-up matches against New Zealand and Australia before T20 WC 2022 league stage commences. Players and coaching staff were seen in a positive mood on their arrival at Brisbane Airport.

During a press conference on Saturday, Rohit Sharma revealed that the team management has already decided India XI for T20 WC match against Pakistan.
“I don’t believe in last-minute decisions. We want to keep our boys informed about team selection before so that they can prepare early. I already have my XI for the Pakistan match. Already, those players are informed. I don’t believe in last-minute thing. I want them to prepare well”, Rohit said during the conference.
