London: Virat Kohli didn't see any reason to rest on a rainy day in Manchester, spending time batting in the indoor nets to prepare for India's next group game against West Indies.
Kohli was one of the four Indian players who practiced indoors under the watchful eye of coach Ravi Shastri after the scheduled session at Old Trafford was washed out. Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has been sidelined for two games because of a hamstring strain, did a light workout.
India is coming off an unexpectedly tight win over Afghanistan at Southampton on Saturday and faces a West Indies lineup that needs to win to remain in semifinal contention. West Indies had a five-run loss to New Zealand - which along with India is unbeaten - when Carlos Brathwaite was caught on the long-on boundary attempting to hit a six that would have given the Caribbean team a comeback victory.
