Members of the Indian cricket team have kickstarted their fitness regimes before the England tour. While the men in blue are still in their hard quarantine but they are leaving no stone unturned as they sweat it out in the gym, ensuring they are in the best shape once they get out of quarantine in England ahead of the World Test Championship final against New Zealand in Southampton.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video on its official social media where the likes of Shubman Gill, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant, Ishant Sharma, and others were spotted going through their paces.

India captain Virat Kohli, his white-ball deputy Rohit Sharma, and head coach Ravi Shastri joined the England-bound squad’s bio-bubble on Tuesday.

All the players are in Mumbai before they leave for the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand, beginning from June 18.

Rishabh Pant also posted a video on his social media handle where the southpaw is seen practicing handstands and back stands.

“The world may seem upside down at times, but the goals are always in sight,” he captioned it.
