A few days back, the players of Team India’s ODI team arrived in Trinidad, where they commenced prepping for the 50-over contests. The Men in Blue went to the first ODI stadium on Wednesday (July 20) for a net session, but because of the rain, they were compelled to practice indoors.
An admirer of the Indian cricket team withstood the weather and waited two hours in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and Tobago, on Wednesday to see her favorite players. After India’s first session on Wednesday, Shizara, who labeled herself as a keen Shreyas Iyer fan, grabbed the Indian batter’s autograph on a toy bat.
“I would have liked Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul but I will be going to Brian Lara Stadium to get those signatures,” she said in a video posted by journalist Vimal Kumar on his YouTube channel.
The top Indian cricketers Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Jasprit Bumrah have been given a break from the three one-day international matches against the West Indies that will begin on July 22 at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain. However, with the exception of Kohli and Bumrah, all of them are anticipated to join the team for the next match.
Iyer is among the best cricketers in the world at the plate. Iyer is currently leading the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL. He was previously the skipper of the Delhi Capitals.
The longest period was spent batting in the nets by Iyer, who has lately been the brunt of short-pitched deliveries. After the session, he evaluated his batting with Rathour.
Captain Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Deepak Hooda, and Sanju Samson were photographed working out in the indoor nets during the optional training session. Only one of the bowlers, Arshdeep Singh, was visible flexing his arms. Under the cautious observation of head coach Rahul Dravid, batting coach Vikram Rathour, and bowling coach Paras Mhambrey, the hitters mostly batted against India’s throwdown specialists.
The first One-Day International (ODI) in the India-West Indies series will be played at Trinidad’s Queen’s Park Oval on Friday, July 22. On July 24 and 27, the following two ODIs will be held at the same location. For players like Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan, and Deepak Hooda to secure a spot in India’s T20 World Cup team, the ODI series will be an excellent opportunity.
The two teams will face off in 5 T20Is on July 29, August 1, 2, 6, and 7 following 3 ODIs. In Florida, the United States, the series’ final two T20Is will be played.
