Indian skipper Virat Kohli hit the nets in Bandra Kurla Complex, for the first time, after having suffered an injury around two weeks back in the IPL 2018.
Kohli had arrived at BKC for a light training session alongside assistant coach Sanjay Bangar.
The player had to miss the County stint with Surrey due to a neck injury.
Here is more about Kohli's training.
Kohli looks to regain full fitness
Kohli spent a few hours in BKC's indoor facility and is expected to undergo a similar schedule over the next two weeks.
The 29-year-old will be undergoing a fitness test in Bengaluru on June 15.
Kohli is looking to regain full fitness in the next two weeks and gear up for India's tour of UK.
He will be leading the team against Ireland.
Surrey stint avoided to ensure Kohli remains fully fit
As per reports, a BCCI source stated that the Surrey stint was avoided only to ensure that he is fully fit for the upcoming tour of England.
The source also added that it was unfortunate he couldn't play for Surrey, but being completely fit for the tour is the most important thing.
India leave for Ireland on June 23 and will play two T20Is.
Kohli had suffered a neck injury
Earlier, following assessments by the BCCI medical team, the decision was taken that Kohli will not be playing County.
The BCCI, in a press release, had stated that a neck injury suffered during IPL 2018 was the reason.
Kohli wanted to use County to prepare for the upcoming England tour.
Kohli is now making progress in order to be completely fit.
Excessive cricket is taking a toll on Kohli
In the last 12 months, Kohli has played all 9 Tests which India have played, 29 of 32 ODIs, 9 of 18 T20Is.
It means he has featured in 47 of 59 international matches played.
The non-stop cricket is taking a toll on his body. Even Kohli had acknowledged this fact when he decided to skip the Nidahas Trophy.
