Begins training at Sydney Olympic Park
Sydney: Gearing up for a gruelling tour of Australia, the Indian team on Saturday began outdoor training with a light session after the entire contingent tested negative for COVID-19. Several cricketers who recently competed in the IPL in the UAE, including Hardik Pandya, Prithvi Shaw and Md. Siraj, attended the session at Blacktown International Sports Park inside the Sydney Olympic Park.
Spinner Kudeep Yadav, pacer Umesh Yadav, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur and Test batting mainstay Cheteshwar Pujara were seen warming up. India’s newest pace sensation, T. Natarajan, and Deepak Chahar were also seen in the pictures.
The Indian team is currently serving a 14-day quarantine period and members have cleared the initial COVID-19 test, according to information received.
Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal also posted a picture from his twitter handle with fellow spinner Kuldeep.
India is scheduled to play three ODIs, three T20s and a four-Test series on the tour, starting with T20Is from Nov. 27. The Test series will begin with a Day-Night game at Adelaide from December 17. Skipper Virat Kohli will miss the last three matches as he will be on a paternity during that time.
