The most experienced player, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was seen in fielding session with the coach and later he moved to the nets to enhance his batting. Rohit, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul and Kedar Jadhav were seen batting as well.

Apart from the batsmen, bowling unit comprising Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav bowled in nets. Bumrah was seen with the head coach Ravi Shastri for quite a long discussion.

During the practice session, Cheif Selector MSK Prasad was watching the players from the pavilion. This may be the last practice session before the team's opening match against South Africa, scheduled on June 5.
