The cricket camp for the Ireland-bound Indian one-day squad began in full swing on the second day in Bangalore on Thursday, following the arrival of six players who could not reach on Wednesday because of flight delays.
Former captain Sourav Ganguly and wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Ramesh Powar, Piyush Chawla and Rudra Pratap Singh -- who faced difficulties in reaching Bangalore on time due to the strike by Indian employees -- joined the camp on Thursday.
Skipper Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Kaarthick, Rohit Sharma, Zaheer Khan, Ajit Agarkar and S Sreesanth reported at the camp on Wednesday afternoon.
The campers are scheduled to have a full session on Thursday at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, according to camp coordinator Ramesh Rao.
The camp is being supervised by bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad and fielding coach Robin Singh in the presence of physio John Gloster and trainer Greg King.
Manager for the tour and former Test captain Chandu Borde will not attend the camp and will join the team on June 19 in Mumbai, from where they will depart for London en-route to Ireland.
