In a recent Twitter post by the Cricket Control Board of India, the duo and coaching staff, led by Rahul Dravid, were pictured practicing in a new training kit from new sponsor, Adidas.
Earlier this week, The Indian Express reported that the first batch of players in the Indian squad for the WTC finals left for England on May 23. Axar Patel was among the first batch of players.
Р. Ashwin did not go with the first batch. The off-spinner, along with left-handed seamer Jaidev Unadkat, will travel later in the day. Virat Kohli and pacemaker Mohammed Siraj will depart for London on May 24, it was learned.
Kohli and Siraj played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday and failed to make the playoffs despite the former captain’s brilliant century goal. According to the newspaper, Kohli will fly out with his family in the early morning hours of May 24.
The players will be given a day off after the IPL so they can be with their families before leaving for England. Siraj flew to Hyderabad from Bangalore on Monday and will join the team later this week along with the second batch of players.
