India have begun their training period before postponing the fifth Test against England. The match, which is considered part of a five-match Test series played in 2021, is set to be played at Old Trafford from July 1 to 5 and follows India’s limited overs tour, which includes three T20Is and multiple ODIs. .
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday shared photos of India’s Test players training at the Leicestershire Cricket Club, saying it will serve as the basis for the week’s team.
BCCI has previously shared photos of players being trained in London. Star names such as skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jaspreet Bumrah and returning Cheteshwar Pujara are in England, while wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and batter Shreyas Iyer have traveled to England on Monday following the India T20I series against South Africa. .
BCCI shared a video of Rohit and Shubman Gill on the Nets on their Instagram handle. The final Test of the series was postponed on the day the Kovid-19 outbreak was scheduled to start at the Indian camp last year. India have taken a 2-1 lead in the series.
A lot has changed in both teams since the series kicked off. Both teams have different leaders, Virat Kohli stepped down to India earlier this year and Rohit Sharma took over. Meanwhile, all-rounder Ben Stokes has taken over as England captain after the dismissal of Joe Root.
Both teams have new head coaches. If Rahul Dravid stepped down from India last year, then Brendon McCullum was appointed England’s Test coach after Chris Silverwood was sacked last month.
