A number of England cricketerss have revealed that some Diwali festival celebrations have been taking place outside of their team hotel in India.
Below is what some of the squad have been saying:
"This place is kicking off! Happy Diwali! I'm sure I've just seen someone trying to catch a rocket?!"
"Could be an interesting night sleep... Diwali in India, fireworks on steroids."
"Happy Diwali!! Sounds like youre having a cracking time out there!!!"
"Thought fireworks were an evening thing. Scared the living daylights out of me. 20 yds from my bedroom window."
"May this Diwali and its festivities brings joy, happiness, wealth, health and prosperity for you and your family."
"Little bit strange listening to Christmas songs in the lift going down for food, but to everyone in India...Happy Diwali."
The first match of England's Test tour of India gets underway on Thursday morning.
