Under the leadership of Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket team is preparing for the highly anticipated 5-match test streak against England starting August 4th in Nottingham. The players started preparing for the tour. Most of them also took part in a three-day warm-up against County Select XI and performed well.
The tour will be a great test of character for those who get the chance to play against Joe Root. At the same time, it will be a tremendous learning experience for the reserve players who have come to the UK with a 20-man team.
Arzan Nagvasvalla is one such player who is happy to train with players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Gujarat youths became part of the tour following his impressive home cricket performances in Gujarat.
In a video posted by the Cricket Control Council of India (BCCI), the 23-year-old summarized his experience and how it would benefit him on his home track.
“The teaching I have received from seniors is that stick to your process and continue to follow it, no matter the situation or condition. It has been a very good experience so far. I spoke to almost everyone on the team. Everyone was so polite and kind to me. I am delighted with the experience I have had so far and I hope to keep the same feeling, ”he said.
Nagwasvalla hopes to become a successful bowler with a wealth of experience and focus on improving every day.
“I just want to improve every day. I want to match the level of training and stability that this team has. Back at home, I want to be one step ahead, ”he said.
Nagwasvalla was accompanied by pacer Prasid Krishan, who is also present in England as a backup player. After a commendable ODI debut earlier this year, Krishna is simply delighted to have seized the chance to be part of the India versus England squad.
“I have been playing red ball cricket in almost a year and a half. Coming here and playing bowling against the best in the country is nothing better. You are challenged every single day, ”said Krishna.
