India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, coach Duncan Fletcher, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, Ashok Dinda and Mohammad Shami arrived today along with the Pakistani contingent for the second One-Day-International slated for January 3.

The remaining team India players will arrive in batches tomorrow, CAB sources said.

The players arrived by a chartered flight from Chennai and were taken to the team hotel amidst tight security. They will remain at the hotel and will be busy with private parties to usher in the New Year.

The teams are slated to practice at the Eden Gardens tomorrow afternoon, the local manager said.
