The Indians will have extra security deployed at their disposal since the local Indians have left no stone unturned in displaying their unhappiness with the performance of the visitors. Local Indians have mobbed the team on several occasions since their humiliating loss at Nottingham.
"ECB is aware that the team is being harassed by local Indians, they have promised more security if needed," said a source upon the team's arrival here for the two-day warm-up game that begins on Friday.
Virender Sehwag reached here directly to join his teammates who left Nottingham at 2:30 in the afternoon.
Both Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir have been declared fully fit.
Yuvraj Singh left for London to consult a doctor. Harbhajan Singh's replacement Pragyan Ojha, who is already in England to play county cricket for Surrey, was expected to join the side late last evening.
