Team India Arrives In Kerala For World Cup Warm-Up Match Against Netherlands

Team India on Sunday arrived at the Trivandrum Domestic Airport for its ODI World Cup warm-up fixture against the Netherlands.

As the members of Men in Blue walked out of the terminal, many fans, who had gathered outside the airport, chanted ‘India, India.' 

India's first warm-up game against England in Guwahati was washed out due to rain. They will have one more opportunity to test their playing XI against the Netherlands on Tuesday. 

India have almost a full-strength side at their disposal with KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer and Jasprit Bumrah all making successful comebacks from long-term injuries. 

All three of the stars have played a significant role. In the Super Four Asia Cup match against Pakistan, Rahul made his comeback official with a stunning century. In the second ODI against Australia, Iyer also scored a century. 

With a fierce performance against Pakistan in the Asia Cup Super Fours, Bumrah has shown signs of getting back to his best. After allowing a run in each of his first two outings against Australia in the final ODI, the legendary bowler put on a death bowling masterclass. 

India will start their World Cup drive on October 8 against Chennai against five-time Champions Australia.
