New Delhi: Indian cricket team on Tuesday departed for St. Kitts from Mumbai to play a bilateral Test series in West Indies.

India and West Indies are scheduled to play a four-match Test series, starting July 21 at Antigua.

Premier Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took to Twitter to share a picture from the flight. The offie also gave a caption - “Mumbai en-route to St. Kitts.”

The Kohli-led team will be hoping to regain the top Test ranking during the tour.

However, it seems that the skipper is not that bothered about the rankings, as he stated ahead of the tour: “Rankings are just an incentive. If we win the series, we climb to No. 1 spot which is obviously good for us. We want to play good cricket. Home or away, our priority is to win.”
