Team India gears up for busy season

Bangalore:

After the fast bowlers, it was the turn of probables for the Asia Cup to join in a fitness camp in Bangalore on Sunday. The camp, being conducted by Gregory Allen King, will give top priority to fitness, to be followed by cricketing skills. Back in action The players have had a long break after their successful tour of Pakistan, and are now keen to get back in top gear for the busy schedule starting next month. The team is headed for six Test matches in a row, including four against Australia and two against South Africa. The action will continue for the rest of the year, and team will be eyeing wins in the ICC Mini World Cup and the Asia Cup. Bowled over Meanwhile, the Indian captain says he is pleased with his bowlers, who have already finished their fitness training. "I am looking up to Harbhajan Singh. He has recovered well because he is a match winner. I am really looking forward to him getting fit before the Australians arrive. Anil (Kumble) too have been the best I've seen ever," said Sourav Ganguly. "Apart from the two main spinners, Murali Kartik is also looking good," he added. Upbeat mood On the prospects for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy match in Holland, Ganguly said the conditions would suit the seamers. "It is very important to have a group of upcoming fast bowlers when you travel overseas. Since the time their performance as a bowling unit has peaked, success overseas has also improved," he said. The captain said Yuvraj Singh was currently the first choice as an opener in the batting line-up. The team for the Asia Cup to be held in Sri Lanka is likely to be selected at the end of the camp.
