With just around a week to go for the Anthony de Mello Trophy, the Indian and English players prepare themselves for the gruelling four-Test series, starting February 5 in Chennai. However, before the action gets underway, players from both sides are quarantining in a hotel, in Chennai.

The players would only get to train themselves for three days, starting Tuesday. England would go ahead in the series without a proper warm-up game because it is already coming off a two-Test series in India's neighbouring sub-continent country, Sri Lanka, where it made a 2-0 clean sweep.

As the players wait until Tuesday to resume proper training, they train themselves to some extent and as much possible in their hotel rooms itself. Recently, Indian skipper, Virat Kohli shared a video of himself training similarly.

It would be Kohli's first international series following the birth of his child, a baby girl, earlier this month. He was on paternity leave after the first Test in Australia last month.
