Kings XI Punjab players are training hard in the UAE since last week. Adding to their challenge is the hot weather in the UAE which is making training a tough affair for KXIP players.
After training in hot weather when players got a rest day they decided to hit the beach & enjoy some free-time. Players splashed in hot water on a private beach to relax themselves before getting back to their intense training regime once again. The Punjab-based franchise shared a small video of how their players enjoyed their day off. “Training de ‘beach’ thoda fun vi jaruri hai,” tweeted Kings XI Punjab.
In the video everyone were seen doing things as per their liking & wishes. While Mayank Agarwal relaxed on a beach chair, their head coach Anil Kumble decided to flaunt his photography skills as he helped Mohammed Shami grab the moon with his palm.
After enjoying their rest day players returned to their pre-season training after getting rejuvenated as they trained under lights on Tuesday. KXIP posted a video of their skipper KL Rahul playing an inside out shot over covers, with pure elegance. The timing on the shot was such that could make anyone envious of KL Rahul, who is set to lead Punjab in this year’s IPL.
Under KL Rahul’s leadership Punjab will be hoping to go all the way this year & lift the IPL trophy. However the players will have to quickly adapt themselves to the hot & humid conditions in the UAE before the tournament gets started on September 19.
