Following their triumph over New Zealand in Dharamsala on Sunday, the Indian cricket team has been awarded a two-day respite. Subsequently, they will embark on their journey to Lucknow, their next destination for the World Cup, on Wednesday. These days off will be a chance for the team to rejuvenate in the picturesque hill town of Himachal Pradesh.

As per a spokesperson for the team, the squad is scheduled to depart for Lucknow on October 25. Currently, no practice or net sessions, whether optional or regular, have been planned. India is gearing up to face England in Lucknow on October 29.

In the World Cup, India stands atop the points table with a flawless record of five wins in as many games. They have four more matches on the horizon, including battles against England in Lucknow on October 29, Sri Lanka in Mumbai on November 2, South Africa in Kolkata on November 5, and the Netherlands in Bengaluru on November 12.

In the midst of these developments, there is no concrete information available regarding the status of Hardik Pandya, the all-rounder who is currently undergoing treatment for an ankle injury sustained during the match against Bangladesh. He is receiving treatment at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has conveyed that there are no plans to announce a replacement for him, expressing optimism that he will make a full recovery in time for the England game.

Pandya’s ankle sustained an injury during a bowling spell against Bangladesh in Pune on October 19, which subsequently led to his exclusion from the squad for the Dharamsala game. An informed source has stated that it’s a minor sprain and not a serious concern, expecting him to be available for selection in the Lucknow match.

In addition to this, it has been confirmed that Ishan Kishan, who was stung by an insect prior to the New Zealand game, is in good health and ready for future matches.
