  • Ahead of the WTC final, team India trains with “high intensity” at Southampton
  • Team India had their first group training session in Southampton

Team India gears up for the World Test Championship (WRC) final against New Zealand as they have their first group training session in Southampton. The WTF final will begin on the 18th of June. Recently, team India completed their mandatory hotel quarantine at the Ageas Bowl stadium and will be looking to keep their preparations going ahead of the highly-anticipated fixture.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to Twitter on Thursday to share a video from team India’s first group training session, and captioned it, “We have had our first group training session and the intensity was high #TeamIndia’s preparations are on in full swing for the #WTC21 Final”.

In the video shared by BCCI, the India skipper Virat Kohli, along with Rishabh Pant and Ravichandran Ashwin were seen sweating it out ahead of the upcoming WTC final.

The WTC final will be played between June 18 and 22, at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, with June 23 kept as a reserve day.

Senior Indian off-spinner R Ashwin has posted a video of him bowling at the Ageas Bowl during the high intensity practice session. He captioned the Instagram post, “Good to be back out there and play some cricket again!!”

He later changed the caption to, “Back to school”.
