The reason why India canceled their practice session ahead of T20 WC final against South Africa

India will play the T20 World Cup final against South Africa at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on Saturday. After the second semi-final between India and England ended at the Providence Stadium in Guyana, ICC confirmed that India had cancelled their training session on Friday as they are slated to travel to Barbados the same day via a charter flight.

Since the final starts early on Saturday in Barbados, the Indian team management decided to give the players adequate rest instead of indulging in a training session.

“India have cancelled their training session,” said the ICC.

In another first, India held two press conferences back-to-back in Guyana. The first one was the post-match press conference for India’s 68-run win against England in the semi-final. This was addressed by the man-of-the-match, Axar Patel. The next was a pre-match media interaction for the final, attended by head coach Rahul Dravid.
