Changing weather in Ahmedabad seems to have affected the English camp. A sudden rise in temperature here has affected the visitors with a few members, including assistant coach Paul Collingwood, reportedly suffering from diarrhea.

England captain Joe Root confirmed that a bug has hit the camp without confirming what it was or how many players were affected.


"There's been a little bit of stuff flying around. We'll keep monitoring it. To be honest, I don't know exactly who's been affected badly at this stage but it's just really important we try and give everyone the best chance of being available for selection ahead of this game," Root told the British media.

India captain Virat Kohli, however, confirmed that none of the Indian players have contracting any ailment.

"There are no health concerns or health issues. Everyone is fit and fine. Probably, [England players] would have been caught by a change in weather. It has been pretty hot over the last couple of days. It was pretty pleasant the first few days. That obviously becomes a factor at this time of the year when the weather changes rapidly. It takes a bit of time to adapt," said Kohli on Wednesday.
