PTI, Jul, 08 2016

Basseterre: The Indian cricket team, led by skipper Virat Kohli, enjoyed a session of sun and sea, playing beach volleyball in the idyllic islands of St Kitts on Friday.

Beach volleyball was the way through which the cricketers relaxed after a long flight from India, during which chief coach Anil Kumble saw his baggage misplaced.

The BCCI posted a video of the players chilling out at the beach, with all-rounder Stuart Binny indulging in a bit of commentary.

India will open their tour with a two-day warm-up game against the West Indies Cricket Board President's XI at Warner Park, St Kitts from tomorrow.

A second practice match, a three-day affair, will start at the same venue from July 14.

The first of the four Tests will be played in Antigua's Sir Vivian Richards Stadium from July 21.

Considered one of the most beautiful islands in this part of the world, St Kitts is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea on the west and Atlantic Ocean in the east.
