The World Test Championship (WTC) final is just a few days away as India-Australia get ready to fight it out for the ultimate glory at the Kennington Oval, London. Both the teams are in England now and are chalking out their plans ahead of big final.
However, a big news coming up is that Indian team is currently forced to practice out of London and is staying at Arundel City. It is a small market town in the Arun District of the South Downs in West Sussex. So, India is reportedly practicing in the Arundel Castle Cricket Ground which is considered as one of the most beautiful ground in the world.
Reason for India not practicing at the Oval
India though would have hoped to practice at Kennington Oval ahead of such a big game but have been denied practice by ICC. The reason for the same according to the report by OneCricket is that - the Kennington Oval is busy for WTC preparation.
Also, the Lord's Cricket Stadium is busy due to the England-Ireland Test that started on 1st of June and all other small venues are reportedly busy for county teams.
Ishan Kishan was seen practicing in the nets at the Arun Castle Cricket Ground and looked in fine touch. Arundel is actually bit down south from London but India is leaving no stones unturned in ironing out all the chinks in their armour before the all-important WTC final.
