On reaching Hyderabad, the Indian players have to immediately practice in the nets. If Cricbuzz is to be believed, Virat Kohli will take a day off after the nets on January 21 as he has taken permission from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to attend the Ram Temple installation in Ayodhya.

Meanwhile, Ravindra Jadeja has turned to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for the Test series. It is also revealed that he has canceled all his commercial programs and ad shoots to be in NCA.

After preparing for the series in Abu Dhabi, the England team is scheduled to reach Hyderabad on January 21. Steve Harmison left no stone unturned in launching a criticism against the team management led by Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum due to the late arrival of the England team. He said that the England team is in danger of losing the series 5-0.

IND vs ENG, Test: Steve Harmison told radio station talkSPORT’s Following On podcast :

“I’m an old man and that’s what they’re going to say, times have changed but preparation hasn’t. You can’t go into India with less preparation,” Steve Harmison told radio station talkSPORT’s Following On podcast.

“I like the new approach with Ben Stokes, Brendon McCullum and Rob Key and everything the ECB has done. But I’m sorry, you’d never go to an Ashes series three days earlier. You’d never go to Australia three days earlier. If you don’t want to go, then why go to Hyderabad three days in advance? We have to play five Test matches in India.”

Let us also tell you that the last time England defeated India in India in 2012, the Alastair Cook-led team had arrived almost two weeks early.
