It seems that the defending champions India have acclimatised quite well to the English conditions ahead of the Champions Trophy 2017 after star batsman Shikhar Dhawan shared a video on his Facebook wall in which he is seen dancing with skipper Virat Kohli on a peppy Punjabi song while leaving for a practice session. 

"Thats how we pump before d practise session, on our way to ground. @virat.kohli @rashwin99." Dhawan wrote on Facebook.

Dhawan has received a major boost to his international career after he was included in the Indian squad for the tournament due to his fine performance in the IPL 2017. 

The 31-year-old Delhi left-hander was dropped for the third and final ODI against England after making 1 and 11 in the first two games. In this format he averages close to 43 after 76 games.

He has not made it to the T20 Internationals since figuring against Australia at Mohali in March, 2016 and was also ignored for the five-Test series against England after not doing well in the preceding three-Test rubber against New Zealand.  

Virat Kohli, who had a tough Indian Premier League as Royal Challengers Banegalore captain, too looked chilled out showing his dance moves. 

Team India will kick-start their Group B campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on June 4 in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
