Team India in battle mode!
The seven-day camp has been a departure from the usual training when the players ran around a few plastic cones.
Breaking new grounds in sports training, the cricketers, attired in Army uniform, went through a set of rigorous as well as fun-filled drills during a seven-hour session at the Parachute Regimental Centre in Bangalore on Monday.
The seven-day camp has been a departure from the usual training when the players ran around a few plastic cones and did catching practice.
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.
