Indian captain Rahul Dravid, who was injured at the conditioning camp for the Bangladesh tour, was doing fine and there was no doubt about his leaving for the tour along with other team members on Monday, Team India's manager Ravi Shastri said on Tuesday.
"Rahul is fine. He will brush off that injury. He is a tough cookie. His improvement is being monitored," Shastri said in Kolkata.
Dravid, however, did not attend the coaching session on Sunday as he is on rest following doctor's advise.
Other players including Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar were undergoing the net session.
Dravid was hit on the nose by a bouncer from Rudra Pratap Singh on Saturday, the penultimate day of the conditioning camp in Kolkata.
Team's Administrative manager Surendra Bhave said on Saturday that Dravid's injury was not serious and he was expected to start playing in 48 hours.
