Trent Bridge, Aug 16 - The Indian cricket team on Thursday observed a two-minute silence in remembrance of former skipper Ajit Wadekar, who died in Mumbai after a prolonged illness.

Wadekar, who captained India to their first overseas victories in the West Indies and England in the 1970s, had died on Wednesday. He was 77.

The BCCI tweeted a photo wherein members of the Indian squad along with the support staff observed a two-minute silence to condole the death of the former captain.

Struggling after losing the opening two Tests to hosts England, the Virat Kohli-led visitors are currently preparing for the third match of the five-Test rubber, that starts here on Saturday.
