Ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand from June 18, Indian cricket team all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja shared pictures on Twitter from his training session at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton. Jadeja posted with a caption that read, “First outing in Southampton #feelthevibe #india.” The Indian team arrived in England on June 3 carrying with them evidence of negative PCR tests after completing a 14-day quarantine in a bio-secure environment in Mumbai. After arriving, the players were kept in managed isolation, staying at the on-site hotel within the stadium complex.
In the pictures, Jadeja was seen doing some bowling practice.
