With hot and humid conditions on offer, the team management is leaving no stone unturned to ensure the Men in Blue are acclimatised to the surroundings post their quarantine.

The official Twitter handle of the BCCI too shared snapshots of the game as the young Indian side underwent a gruelling practice game to prepare for the upcoming matches.

In a video hosted on Sri Lanka Cricket's Youtube Channel, most of the Indian players were grinding out in their bid to stake a claim in the playing XI of the side.
