Ahead of a long cricketing season ahead, the Indian men's and women's cricket teams have landed in London. The teams were on the same charter flight that took off from Mumbai at midnight. Both the teams will now move to Southampton by road and will complete a mandatory three-day hard quarantine.

While the men's team are set to take on New Zealand in the ICC World Test Championship final commencing on June 18 followed by 5-Test matches against the host nation, the women's team will play a one-off Test against England as well as a T20I and an ODI series.

Meanwhile, a separate white-ball team is set to travel to Sri Lanka for a limited overs tour in July. Head of the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore, Rahul Dravid, is likely to accompany the white-ball specialist team as the head coach.

Check out the video of the team's arrival in England:

There was no pressure previously, nor there is now: Kohli on WTC final

Prior to leaving for the United Kingdom, India skipper Virat Kohli had said that neither was there any pressure on him previously nor there is now. His remark is particularly significant since the men's team hasn't won a single ICC trophy under him despite him having a good record at the helm. On the other hand, women's Test and ODI skipper Mithali Raj expressed her excitement on playing the first Test in seven years.
