India’s Test team will get five days off before the start of the third Test in Indore on March 1. India won the second Test by six wickets in three days at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi.
The players have been asked to report to Indore on February 25. Most of the players headed to their respective homes, while middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav travelled to Tirupati to visit the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams for darshan.
Top Indian players have a hectic schedule coming up. The last two Test matches against Australia will be played in Indore (March 1-5) and in Ahmedabad (March 9-13). This will be followed by three One-day Internationals in Mumbai, Visakhapatnam and Chennai. Nine days later, the Indian Premier League begins.
