The Indian cricket team were seen sweating at the training session, on Thursday, ahead of their third Test match against England. After being criticised from all quarters for skipping their training session, or rather an extra day-off in London, the team India is gearing up for their match against the home team, starting August 18.

Team India players KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Umesh Yadav, and Murali Vijay were seen warming-up during their training sessions. Captain Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara were also seen in their batting gears, readying-up for their turn in the nets at Trent Bridge.

Watch what BCCI posted on its Twitter Account:

The BCCI, on its Twitter account, shared pictures of the Indian team’s preparation ahead of the crucial third Test match at Trent Bridge. Given how the conditions are to be at Nottingham in the next few days, the following picture might give you a far idea.

See Weather Conditions at Trent Bridge:

In the first Test match at Birmingham, the Indian team lost the close-contest by only 31 runs. However, in the second match at London, the margin of defeat was significant, where the Indian team lost the match by an innings and 159 runs.

However, it is not the margin of the defeat that has been the concern, but the manner, i.e. carefree, in which the Indian team has approached the games. All the excellent work done by the Indian bowlers has been undone by the under-performing batsmen.

Earlier in the day, the Indian kept a two-minute silence to condole the passing away of the legendary Ajit Wadekar. The BCCI posted a picture of it too, stating, "#TeamIndia members observe a two-minute silence to condole the sad demise of former India Captain Ajit Wadekar."

Come Saturday, the Indian team under the leadership of Virat Kohli would be looking to set things right, and soon. They will have to win the third Test match if they want to keep their chances of winning the Test series. A draw in the third game will keep the series relevant.
