Players have taken to their social media handles posting pictures of themselves while practicing and enjoying Florida.
On Friday, Capt. Virat Kohl also posted a photo of his teammates on Twitter with the caption "SQUAD".
SQUAD ?? https://t.co/2uBjgiPjIa
– Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) 1564713776000
The photo shows Ravindra Yadeja, Navdayp Siney, Halel Ahmed, Shreeas Iyer, Kronal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and KL Rahul posing with Collie.
Vice-captain Rohit Sharma, however, is missing from the frame, which has again given ammunition to people who speculate about a rift between Cali and his deputy.
Various fans commented on the photo, asking for the absence of India's deputy captain.

Earlier before leaving for the West Indies tour, Rohit also posted a photo on Instagram that read, "I'm not just going out for my team. I'm going out for my country."
Ever since India's exit from the World Cup semi-finals, there have been rumors of a rift between Coli and Rohit. Both Coli and head coach Ravi Shastri have denied reports to the Indian captain, summarizing the rumors as "disturbing".
Rohit does not follow Kohli on Instagram and he recently gave up on Anushka Sharma – wife of the captain of India too, who added fuel to various rumors.
However, Kohli still follows Rohit on the photo-sharing website, but not his wife, Ritika Saideh.
Anushka also does not follow Ritika and Rohit on Instagram, as she does with Ritika, who does not follow the Indian skipper and his wife.
