Rajkot, Jan 9: English cricketers following their two successive defeats in the tour games against India A and Delhi XI, arrived in Rajkot on Wednesday for the first ODI against India starting on Jan 11.
A few Indian cricketers also accompanied the England team, according to an official of Saurashtra Cricket Association.
"The entire England team led by captain Alastair Cook and two Indian players - Ishant Sharma and Gautam Gambhir - on Wednesday, arrived in a special plane from New Delhi, while rest of the players, except Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja, would come later in the day," an official of Saurashtra Cricket Association said.
Since Cheteshwar Pujara is playing the Ranji Trophy tie against Karnataka at Saurashtra University ground, he is expected to join the camp on Thursday.
The visitors are expected to practice in the evening while Team India will be practising on Thursday morning.
India and England are scheduled to play a five-match ODI series starting from Jan 11.
