The Indian team have arrived at Lord’s to practice ahead of their tour game against Middlesex. India is preparing for the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series against England and they will play the warm-up game against Middlesex on August 22. The first ODI between India and England is Bristol. The Indian ODI specialists arrived in England on August 18.

India are now trying to bounce back from their 3-1 defeat to England in the recent Test series. Though they won at Lord’s, they found it tough going in the other Tests and were dominated by England.  India have a changed look to their support staff as Ravi Shastri has come as the Director of Cricket. Duncan Fletcher has stayed as the Head Coach even as Joe Dawes and Trevor Penney have been given a break. Bharat Arun, Sanjay Bangar and R Sridhar have joined the team.
