The Indian cricket team sans Sachin Tendulkar and Ravichandran Ashwin along with their West Indian counterparts arrived in Kolkata for the second Test beginning on Monday.

Eyeing his impending 100th international century, Tendulkar is expected to join the team on Saturday, while offspinner Ashwin, who is getting married, will join the squad on the eve of the match, team sources said.

The Chennai spinner is tying the knot with Preethi Narayanan on Sunday and is expected to fly straight to Kolkata after taking the wedding vows.

Ashwin scalped nine wickets, including six in the second innings in the opening Test to earn the Man-of-the-Match award in his debut match in New Delhi.

Both the teams opted to rest on Friday and according to the local manager India will practice at 1 pm on Saturday.

Leading 1-0 by virtue of their five-wicket win in the first Test, India will aim to seal the three-match series with a victory here.
