Indian team practiced together before WTC, BCCI shared video

Southampton: India practiced in a group for the first time at the ground adjacent to the Aegeus Bowl here on Thursday ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand. The WTC Finals will be played from June 18 to 22. This was the first time that players were allowed on the field with their teammates. Earlier, after reaching the UK, he had to live in strict isolation for three days while later he used to go to the gymnasium or practice on the field at different times.

The Board of Cricket in India (BCCI) posted a short video of the practice session on Twitter. BCCI wrote that we practiced in the group for the first time and everyone was excited. The preparations for the Indian team for the WTC Finals are going on in full swing. 

The players spent a lot of time in the nets and players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant batted for ample amount of time. The bowlers also sweated profusely. All the main bowlers Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj and Ravichandran Ashwin participated in the practice session. After the net practice, fielding coach R Sridhar made the players practice the catch.

This England fast bowler said - remove the ICC 'soft signal' rule

Birmingham: Veteran England pacer Stuart Broad wants the ICC to do away with the 'soft signal' rule as it does not live up to expectations and leaves match officials in a dire situation. Broad said this after the controversial decision involving New Zealand batsman Devon Conway in the second Test. Broad believed Conway was caught by Jacques Crowley at slip for 22. The on-field umpire left the decision to TV umpire Michael Gough who softly signaled not out.

Conway took full advantage of the opportunity and scored 80 runs to put New Zealand in a strong position. Broad said before the third day's play that you can understand from our reaction on the field that we thought he was out. Jacques felt the ball had landed in his hand and saw Joe Root at first slip and James Brassie behind the wicket who were a yard away from it. He knew that the ball was in his hand.

But it is not the fault of the umpires who are 40 yards away, he said. This rule has made their position difficult. Broad appealed to the ICC to look into this and take necessary measures. If you look at the positive and negative aspects of this rule, the negative is more. I think this is a bad rule and ICC should remove it without waiting for the next meeting.
