The cricket teams of India and Sri Lanka arrived in Kanpur on Saturday for the second Test match, beginning on Tuesday at Green Park Stadium.
However, the Indian trio of Vireder Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir have not arrived with the Indian team as they have gone to Delhi and will reach in Kanpur on Sunday.
The teams landed in the city in the afternoon and amidst a tight security were taken to a city hotel.
The hotel staff welcomed the players by presenting them roses and putting on traditional 'tika' on their forheads.
Indian run-machine Sachin Tendulkar was presented a memento for completing 20 glorious years in international cricket while skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was welcomed with a big bouquet.
