You can see the chairs set as a sort of a net. And the team I was part of won in that.”Then we went on to bibs catching. That is all about agility and stamina. You have to run around with each carrying a bib at the back. In a two-minute round you have to snatch each other’s bibs. The one with the most number of bibs wins. After the second round we ran so much that we fell on the ground,” Chahal said.Some + BIB catching for #TeamIndia on Day 1 at the drillsMr. @yuzi_chahal at it #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/tupMzxNQUCBCCI (@BCCI) May 23, 2019India will play two warm-up games against New Zealand and Bangladesh on May 25 and 28 respectively, before their first World Cup game against South Africa on June 5 in Southampton.advertisementEngland are hosting the World Cup for the 5th time and for the 1st time in 20 years.
