India is all set to face Australia in the fourth and final Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground starting today, January 3. Seems like Virat Kohli is determined to perform his best in the match and is seeking help from Pakistan to make it possible.
The Indian cricketer was spotted training with two Pakistani bowlers in the practice nets.
The fast bowlers were Salman Irshad and Haris Rauf who play for the Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Apparently, both the Pakistani cricketers are playing club cricket in Australia and will be seen giving their best in the upcoming edition of the PSL.

Pakistani fans are elated after watching them united for a practice session
Nice and an amazing exposure for the lads… Chalo Indian batsmen might get an idea of how good the level of bowling in PSL is 😉

And Kohli’s smile said it all!
When Kohli has a smile on his face, it usually means that he is satisfied with the players, and in this case, these two bowlers talent!

It is rightly said that sports transcend all borders. Both Kohli and Lahore Qalandar stars were delighted to enjoy the game with each other.
Kohli has high chances of becoming the only Indian captain to win a Test series in Australia. India is leading the four-match Test series by 2-1.
