The Indian national team cricketers have been active on social media since their defeat to England in the ODI series, such as Virat Kohli and wife Anushka Sharma's PDA posts, however, it's time for the cricketers to bid adieu to their wives and girlfriends as they gear up for the upcoming Test series, commencing from August 1.

According to Mumbai Mirror, the WAGs (Wives and girlfriends) of the Team India players will part ways and can only get to meet them till the end of the third Test in Nottingham (August 22) as the players have to shift their focus onto the five-match rubber. 

“We’ve had four days of rest before settling down for the serious task ahead. The players had moved out with spouses, friends and relatives and tomorrow (Monday) we will leave for Chelmsford,” a team source told Mirror.

Virat and Anushka have been updating photos on Instagram, with friends and fans in England. The skipper had shared a few romantic posts on social media before he turns his entire focus to getting the job done in the upcoming five-match gruelling Test series. 

Opener Shikhar Dhawan was with his family in London. 

As the Indian skipper has unfinished business in England, captain Kohli's list of objectives just increased as he has to focus and play as a batsman and a skipper as well.

After England claimed the bragging rights by winning the ODIs, the mind games have begun and the only way any cricketer can dignify the taunts with a response is by showcasing it on field which commences from August 1 with the first Test being held in Birmingham.
