Members of the Indian Test team in South Africa took some time off from their training ahead of the third Test at the Wanderers Stadium on January 24 and visited the Kruger National Park in Johannesburg recently. Opening batsman KL Rahul posted a picture on Twitter alongwith a cheetah and wrote: "Just a Lion and a Cheetah chilling."

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja seemed rather comfortable as he slept next to a lion cub. His home state of Gujarat is also home to the world famous Gir forest which has an impressive lion population. "Sher! sher hota hai, chahe sasan gir mein ya Joburg mein. Pinjare mein sher ko bahut log pathar marte hain, asli mard unke saamne hote hain #lionselfie #rajputboy," he wrote which when translated reads: "A lion is a lion whether he is in Gir or in Johannesburg. When a lion is in a cage, many people throw stones at him but only a real man stands in front of a lion."

Jasprit Bumrah got a bit philosophical in his message: "Never become sad when life pulls you back, because lion also takes one step back when he wants to go for a long jump."
