New head coach Anil Kumble posted a photograph of the team in his twitter handle and wrote: “Reached St. Kitts...long flight..@cheteshwar1 @klrahul11 @y_umesh Tour begins @BCCI.”
West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) also shared a picture of the Indian team after they reached St.Kitts.
“India led by @imVkohli arrived in #StKitts to prepare for the 4 Tests in #Antigua, #Jamaica, #StLucia, #Trinidad,” the WICB tweeted.
India and West Indies are scheduled to play a four-match Test series, starting July 21 at Antigua, in what would be Kumble’s first assignment as the chief coach of the team and Virat Kohli’s first tour to the Caribbean as Test captain.
