Kochi:

The India and England cricket teams arrived on Saturday for the second one-dayer to be played at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium here on Tuesday.

The teams arrived by a chartered flight at the nearby Nedumbassery International Airport.

On arrival, the teams were accorded a rousing welcome by the Kerala Cricket Association officials.

To add colour to the function 'chenda melam' (cylindrical percussion instruments) and kathakali, the traditional dance form of Kerala, were also performed at the airport where a strong crowd of about 3000 fans were present to cheer the players.

The England team will have a practice session on Sunday morning while India will have nets in the afternoon.

All arrangements at the stadium are in the final stages of completion, a KCA official said.
