Must Read

“We have had our first group training session and the intensity was high [emoticon: fire]. #TeamIndia’s [emoticon: flag of India] preparations are on in full swing for the #WTC21 Final [emoticon: raised hands],” the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted on Thursday.

The video showed India skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant among others batting in the nets while R Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj bowled to them.

The players are also shown practicing slip catching in a video that is over a minute long.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) had allowed a gradual increase in training to the Indian team that reached Southampton on June 3 and is serving quarantine at the Hilton hotel in the stadium premises.

Virat Kohli’s side plays New Zealand in the WTC final from June 18 at the venue after having qualified for it with series wins over Australia and England this year.

The Kiwis are currently busy in Birmingham with the second of the two-Test series against England.

“Regular tests will be conducted during the period of isolation. Players’ activity will be allowed in a gradually increasing manner after each round of negative testing, moving from exercise in isolation to small group and then larger squad activity, whilst always remaining within the bio-secure venue,” the ICC said in a statement last month about India’s stay in Southampton.
