Team India has a significant challenge at hand as it would look to tame New Zealand in the ICC World Test Championship 2019-21 final, set to be held at the Rose Bowl in Southampton from June 18. Ahead of the same, the Indian unit arrived in England on Thursday night (morning in England).

The Indians left off from Mumbai on Wednesday night after a 14-day quarantine. Following a 12-hour journey, the Indians landed in England and headed to the Southampton venue that has an on-site hotel, where it would undergo a further ten-day quarantine.

In a video shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the players are seen on the flight, enjoying their trip in various fashions. Some of the cricketers even gave their reactions on their journey.

All-rounder Axar Patel said, "I watched a movie for around 2 hours and then had an excellent sleep for about six hours, while I'm having breakfast now and feel fresh. We'll be quarantining after reaching the venue, while we are most likely not to see each other for three days at least."
