The military-like training schedule on the penultimate day of the camp was complete with wall and pit jumping, rope bridge crossing, trekking and target shooting which was a hit with the players.

The activities, which were given a touch of improvisation by trainer Gregory Allan King, were thoroughly enjoyed by the players who, after the strenuous workout from 7.30 am to 3 pm, confined themselves to their rooms in the evening.

They will reassemble for one final session of outdoor activities tomorrow before dispersing home for a short break.

The team will reconvene for skills development camp here on August 5 and will be joined by coach Greg Chappell, currently on a holiday, on the previous day.

The team will depart for Colombo on the night of August 10. The tri-series runs from August 14 to 29.
