Team India are having an excellent outing so far in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. They registered two wins from their first two matches against South Africa and Australia respectively, but rain played a spoilsport during India's encounter against an in-form New Zealand side at Trent Bridge on Thursday. The match had to be abandoned and both teams had no other option but to split points with each other. Irrespective of the end result, India are still the undefeated team in this tournament.

The Men In Blue will now face arch-rivals Pakistan in what is a highly anticipated blockbuster clash at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday. As the Virat Kohli-led side look to continue their World Cup dominance over their arch-rivals and keep their unbeaten run intact, skipper Virat Kohli is also not leaving any stone unturned as he was seen sweating it out in the gym. Kohli, who is the top-ranked batsman in both Tests and One Day Internationals, posted a video on Twitter of him involved in an intense workout with a caption 'A good lift is satisfying. #makeitcount #nodaysoff'.

However, most netizens connected his 'lifting' session to the World Cup, and wrote how that this lifting will gear up him for 'lifting' the World Cup and some wrote that'd be more satisfying.

Here's what the fans had to say after watching King Kohli not compromising with fitness ahead of the big match.
