The Indian men’s cricket team arrived in London on Thursday for the upcoming World Test Championship final(WTC) against New Zealand and the subsequent Test series versus host England. The men’s team was accompanied by the women’s side which is touring England for three ODIs and as many T20s besides the one-off Test, starting in Bristol on June 16.

The cricketers were accompanied by their families, as recently the UK government cleared families of players and coaching and support staff to accompany them on the four-month-long tour.

The families also boarded the charter flight with the Indian team, they first landed in London. From there, both the squads moved to Southampton, where they will serve the required quarantine period, the duration for which is yet to be confirmed.

Team India on reaching England:

Upon completion of the quarantine period and subsequent COVID-19 test, the Virat Kohli-led men in blue will take on New Zealand in the maiden WTC final from June 18. Following the WTC final, the team will face England in a five-match Test series starting August 4 in Nottingham. The team traveled with an extended 20-member squad for the WTC final and subsequent series against England keeping the COVID-19 pandemic in mind.

After reaching safely in the bubble, players posted few pictures on social media and shared a view from their room.

Indian batsmen Rohit Sharma, Rishabh pant, Mayank Agarwal, and pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma shared some beautiful snaps from their room. It is learned that the Indian women will then move to Bristol, the venue of their one-off Test against England. The men’s team, too, is expected to start training at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton in a controlled manner post-quarantine.
