The Indian cricket team, on Friday, carried out its first extensive training session ahead of the three-match ODI series against the visiting West Indies, starting on Sunday.
On Thursday, the team had a light session where the players had been accompanied by trainers.
On Friday however, barring the trio of Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shreyas Iyer, all the players and support staff were present for training after testing negative for COVID-19.
The players practiced under lights.
It is understood that head coach Rahul Dravid introduced young leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi to the players.
The likes of Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and others batted at the nets while the spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav, who is making a comeback to the ODI team, and Yuzvendra Chahal rolled their arms overs.
Pacer Mohammad Siraj and all-rounder Shardul Thakur also bowled in the nets.
Opener Mayank Agarwal is in isolation for three days and will be an option for the opening game if KL Rahul isn't available.
Wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan, who can also open the innings, was also added to the ODI squad.
The team was hit with a COVID-19 outbreak on Wednesday as Dhawan, reserve opener Gaikwad and middle-order batter Shreyas had tested positive for the virus during their mandatory isolation period before the start of the series.
Four more cricketers, including net bowler Navdeep Saini, had also tested positive for COVID-19. Saini is on the stand-by list.
The remaining three who tested positive for the virus are non-playing members -- fielding coach T Dilip, security liaison officer B Lokesh and masseur Rajeev Kumar.
