The Indian cricket team is quickly getting into the groove and acclimatising to the Centurion climate as it begins its quest to win its maiden Test series in South Africa, commencing at the SuperSport Park on Boxing Day (December 26).

On Tuesday, the players seen upping their competitive spirit, indulging in a long practice session — their second so far — and picking chief coach Rahul Dravid's brains.

With Dravid speaking about the virtues of "quality practice" and "good intensity" in the first training session, his wards showed true intent on Monday with wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant seen taking a giant leap to his left to pouch a difficult catch, while Wriddhiman Saha, too, took his stance behind the stumps.

Here are some photos of the training session:
