Team India is currently having a fun time in the Nevis Islands. Every day has been a new experience for the team members. Since their arrival, they have been involved in a variety of activities. The Virat Kohli-led side has played two warm-up games do far and a tough and gruelling time awaits for them when they face the West Indies in their own backyard in the seven-week long tour.
In the most recent video posted by the official facebook page of Team India, the boys are seen enjoying a ‘Tag’ game where players form chains to catch others. It’s great, fast-paced chasing activity. All you need is players and a lot of space. The whole squad was seen enjoying their time playing the game.
The Indian team landed in West Indies couple of weeks ago and the boys did not waste time and were seen in an open-air yoga session head coach Anil Kumble and fielding coach Abhay Sharma followed by a game of volleyball.
The first Test will begin on July 21, the second on July 30, the third on August 9 and the last one on August 18. The last time India toured the West Indies was in June 2011 for a three-Test series, which India won 1-0.
Newly appointed coach Anil Kumble has already employed his fresh ideas and plans to encourage team bonding and coordination. Before arriving in the islands, the team underwent a preparatory camp National Cricket Stadium, Bangalore. From making the bowlers bat for long hours to challenging the batsmen with tough tasks, Kumble wants to make sure that every player gives his 100 per cent in the upcoming tour.
