Indian team attended the practice session a day before the first Test against England at Trent Bridge, starting on July 9, 2014. They started the session with a game of football. Thereafter players like Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Cheteshwar Pujara did some batting practice at the nets. Also the Indian pacers like Ishant Sharma, Pankaj Singh bowled at the nets.


It is the first five-Test series India are playing since 2002. India are still searching for an overseas win under Dhoni since 2011. And now they begin their tour against a team who first began the downward slide by whitewashing them 4-0 in 2011. Yet all these remain statistics for a new look team which takes on England at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.
