IND vs ENG: ‘Sir’ England will get trapped in Dravid’s maze, together with Rohit has made an unbroken net!


The head coach of the Indian cricket team, Rahul Dravid, on Tuesday joined the Test team in Leicestershire, England. He flew to London with Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer after the end of the five-match T20I series against South Africa. As he joined the team, Dravid was seen in action mode and during the training session he took classes to instill enthusiasm among all the players.

The BCCI shared seven pictures on social media after giving the news of his joining the team, in which Dravid is seen explaining something to the players. The Indian team had already started practice in Leicestershire under the supervision of bowling coach Paras Mhambrey and batting coach Vikram Rathor. After a week of training here, Team India will play a four-day practice match against Leicestershire County Club from June 24 to 27.

Team India will then play a Test match against England at Edgbaston from July 1, which is the last match of the five-match Test series that was halted due to the Kovid-19 infection last year. India is currently leading 2-1 in this series. After the Test, India and England will play three ODIs and as many T20 Internationals.

‘Positive’ Ashwin could not go
India’s senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s test for Kovid has come positive. Due to this he could not go to England with the team for the Test match to be held at Edgbaston. A BCCI source gave this information. Ashwin is currently in isolation and will join the team only after fulfilling all the requirements related to the protocol. The rest of the Indian team left for England on 16 June. A BCCI source said, “We are hopeful that Ashwin will recover before the Test match starts from July 1. However, his playing in the practice match against Leicestershire is doubtful.
