The likes of Cheteshwar Pujara, Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, skipper Kohli and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant trained at the centre wicket at Durham Cricket Club. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared pictures from the training session of the visitors.

"#TeamIndia back at it and having a centre wicket training at Durham Cricket Club ahead of the five-match Test series against England," BCCI tweeted.

Last week, Pant returned to the team's camp after recovering from Covid-19. During the warm-up fixture, Rahul had donned the wicketkeeping gloves as well because Rishabh Pant and Wriddhiman Saha were unavailable because of Covid-19 protocols.

The India tour of England will mark the beginning of the second edition of the ICC World Test Championship. The Indian side had also played a three-day warm-up game against County Select XI that ended in a draw. KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja played promising knocks while the likes of Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj left an impact with their blowing.
