India begin training for rescheduled fifth Test against England

Ahead of the rescheduled fifth Test against England, the Indian team began training for the game on Friday after arriving in London for the tour. India will lock horns with England for the rescheduled fifth Test at Old Trafford from July 1.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared the photos from the training session as Team India started training in London. “On the road to London#TeamIndia,” BCCI tweeted.

Former India skipper Virat Kohli was also seen sweating on the pitch with the team on Friday. As the team prepares for the long-awaited game, Kohli makes sure he’s in the best shape for game day. The former India skipper shared a post on the Koo app on Friday in which he can be seen sweating hard on the pitch with other players.

“Vamos” Kohli captioned the post on the Koo app. Star hitter Shubman also shared the photos from the workout on the Koo app.

The rescheduled fifth Test is counted as India’s fifth game in England’s 2021 series, which the visitors lead 2-1. The fifth Test was postponed at the last minute following an outbreak of COVID-19 in 2021. The Indian team will also play a four-day warm-up match against Leicestershire from June 24-27 to get into the rhythm of the fifth test. (ANI)
