The strength and conditioning coach of Team India Soham Desai said the players have eased their routines after reaching New York.

"We came in the day before yesterday and we just eased into our routines here, the players are just getting used to the time zone. Today we are having our first ground session...," Soham said.

Meanwhile, India pacer Jasprit Bumrah said, "We have not yet played cricket, came here for a team activity today. Hopefully, it will be good. The weather is really good, so we are looking forward to it."

Also, the team's vice-captain Hardik Pandya was also seen saying, "Very exciting to be here in New York, has a good vibe, bright sun out."

"I heard the cricket is growing here in the US, so we are really excited and the first day here was amazing, so very excited for the few days coming up," Suryakumar Yadav further added.

The "Men in Blue" will begin their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign on June 5 against Ireland at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.
