New York, May 31: Can they do it again? Are they ready? Are their preparations and team balance fine for winning the title?  Will the seniors pros of Team India be able to lift the World Cup trophy once more?  

These questions are bound to be raised as Team India led by Rohit Sharma play their first warm-up match on June 1. In the build to the showpiece spectacle, India will take on Bangladesh in the warm-up fixture in New York on Saturday.

Ahead of the preparatory encounter, wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, all-rounders Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja among others had an intense net session on Thursday. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a glimpse of India's squad members, sweating it hard under the bright sun.

Apart from the batters, India's pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and travelling reserve Khaleel Ahmed were seen honing their bowling skills in the net session.

As per the Cricbuzz report, the Indian team has been training at Cantiague Park for the past two days. In the compulsory practice session, all players spent some time in the middle.

Star batter Virat Kohli is expected to join the squad anytime after he was seen leaving for New York at the Mumbai airport on Thursday. As per the report, his participation in India's only warm-up match against Bangladesh is still not certain.

Rohit Sharma-led Men in Blue will take on Ireland in their opening match in New York on June 5 before taking on arch-rivals Pakistan at the same venue on June 9.

Meanwhile, considering reports of terror threats to the India-Pakistan high octane match on June 9, security has been beefed up in New York, officials informed. (With IANS inputs)
