AgencySYDNEY: After competing on the slow UAE tracks for nearly two months during the IPL, India’s star studded batting line-up is gearing up for the lively Australian pitches with the traditional tennis ball training on Monday.In-form KL Rahul spent considerable time in perfecting his pull-shots with deliveries hurled from 18 yards during Monday’s net session.There was nothing unusual in such session as players train like this when they gear up to compete on tracks where there is steep bounce on offer.In a video posted on twitter by the BCCI, Rahul’s senior teammate Ravichandran Ashwin was seen using a tennis racquet and serving the stand-in white ball vice-captain with tennis balls aimed at his rib cage.Rahul was trying to keep the pull shot down, an art his skipper Viat Kohli has mastered over the years, rolling his wrists. There is a basic purpose of practising against tennis balls. From a shorter distance, the ball travels faster and it helps in making the reflexes quick.
