On cricketing front, Virat Kohli will lead India for the first time in a 50-over World Cup.
India will open their campaign against South Africa on June 5. India, who are one of the favourites, didn't have the best of starts to their World Cup journey, losing their opening warm-up game to New Zealand.
India lost to New Zealand by six wickets, with the batsmen, including Virat Kohli, failing to get going. Ravindra Jadeja was the surprise top-scorer for India, slamming 54 off 50 balls.
It was a walk in the park for New Zealand in the chase as they reached the target in only 37.1 overs with Kane Williamson (67) and Ross Taylor (71) helping themselves to half-centuries.
Virat Kohli and his team will face Bangladesh on May 28 in their second warm-up game.
