Virat Kohli led side's team selection in the 1st Test against South Africa at Cape Town was a talking point for everyone. Fans and media alike criticised the team management's choice of Rohit Sharma ahead of Ajinkya Rahane for the Newlands Test, which India lost by 72 runs. Just a day after India suffered the defeat, Rahane was seen as a part of optional practice session. Apart from Rahane, opener KL Rahul, speedster Ishant Sharma and Parthiv Patel, all of whom carried drinks at Cape Town, were also seen practicing at the nets.
BCCI posted photos of Team India's training session and wrote: "Post game day and back to the grind #TeamIndia."
