The conditioning-cum-cricket camp of the Mumbai Indians, which started here two days ago, has been shifted to Vadodara owing to incessant rain in the city.
"We had originally planned to have the camp in Mumbai at the Cricket Club of India. We did it for one day (at the MCA's BKC complex) but because of the rains could not continue it. We have thus shifted it to Vadodara from today," said a spokesperson for the Indian Premier League team.
The spokesperson said that the team owner Neeta Ambani was already in Vadodara.
"Mrs Neeta Ambani and (India pacer) Zaheer Khan landed today in Vadodara. Zaheer is also taking part in the camp. Sachin Tendulkar is expected to join the others tomorrow. The camp concludes on Saturday," the spokesperson added.
Left-arm pacer Zaheer is out of action following a shoulder injury. On July 13, he underwent an arthroscopic labral repair in his left shoulder, done by Dr Mark Ferguson in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The pace spearhead is undergoing rehabilitation and is expected to return to international cricket by the end of this year.
