With an aim to bury the ghosts of a disastrous tour of 2011, a new-look Indian cricket team would be eyeing a positive start to its two-and-a-half-month long tour of England when it takes on Leicestershire in a three-day practice game, starting here on Thursday. The visitors, led by skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, reached London last week-end ahead of what will be a gruelling tour, including five back-to-back Tests, five ODIs and one T20 International.

The first Test starts at Nottingham on July 9.
