The Indian players have devoted considerable time to improve their fitness and are keen to test themselves in the cricket tri-series here, off-spinner Harbhajan Singh said on Tuesday.
The Punjab bowler, a key component of India's one-day outfit, said the team's trainings in the last few weeks had focused on how to remain fit and avoid injuries.
"Training is very very important. We have to be fit and our body has to be flexible, only then we can play longer and face less injuries," Harbhajan told reporters ahead of India's opening match against West Indies on Thursday.
Fielding and flexibility were the other two areas to which the players had been giving a lot of attention, he said.
"We need to stick to our basic plan so that we have a good chance to win," he said.
The wily offie also said the team had put behind its disappointing 4-1 loss to the West Indies in May, their last ODI series.
