Sachin Tendulkar will attend the pre-season fitness camp in a few days' time as he was unavailable on Tuesday due to prior commitments as eight players were put through their paces here.

Coach Gary Kirsten, who oversaw the fitness camp at the Mumbai Cricket Association's Indoor Academy in Bandra-Kurla Complex today, said it was not possible to get all the players available for the camp at a short notice.

"Sachin was unavailable today. It was not possible to get everyone available at such a short notice. Sachin would do the test in the next few days," Kirsten said.

The eight players who took part in the fitness camp conducted by Indian team physiotherapist Nitin Patel and trainer Ramji Srinivasan, who is tipped to soon join the national squad, were Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Dinesh Karthick, Pragyan Ojha, Abhishek Nayar, Ravindra Jadeja and S Badrinath.

Kirsten said it was good to be with the players for two days. Yesterday a fitness camp was held in Delhi for eight others, including India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
