There is not much time left for the start of the five-match Test series between India and England. The Test series between the two teams will begin on August 4. The first match of the series will be played at Nottingham’s Trent Bridge. Since Corona was positive, Rishabh Pant had to be in isolation for the mandatory time and he has joined Team India after a full recovery and the RTPCR test came back negative. Before the Test series against England, Team India was sweating heavily on July 25. Virat Kohli and company have undergone intensive training and the video is shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Rishabh Pant also appeared during the training period, which is good for Team India at the moment Pant looks fit and looks like he will be available for selection in the first Test match. Pant was unable to play in the only practice match before the series. All the Test players, including Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul, appeared during the practice sessions. Rahane and Virat could not even play a warm-up match, but when they watch this video it seems that the two are now fully fit and playing in the first Test.
