Chittagong:With the last ODI between India and Bangladesh called off due to bad weather and wet outfield, thanks to a depression in the Bay of Bengal, the visitors are settling into the Test match groove with seven members of the squad including 'rested' Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly arriving here today.

According to the Met office, a depression around Bay of Bengal that has intensified into a low pressure zone could mean more rain accompanied by squalls over the next 24 hours.

Besides Tendulkar and Sourav, V V S Laxman, Wasim Jaffer, V R V Singh and Rajesh Power arrived at the port city today.

They were immediately wizzed off to the team hotel under a tight security cover.

The members of the ODI squad set to return home are Robin Uthappa, Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, R P Singh, Dinesh Mongia and Piyush Chawla. Manoj Tewari is already back with a shoulder injury.

The first match of the two-Test series is scheduled to begin here on Friday while the second will be held in Dhaka from May 25.
