29 players called for fitness camps

May 26, 2007 16:39 IST

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has called 14 bowlers and 15 batsmen for training camps, to be held next month in Mysore and Bangalore, ahead of selecting the team for the Ireland and England tours.

The bowlers' camp will be held from June 4 to 8 at the Infosys Campus in Mysore and the batsmen's camp from June 9 to 12 at the National Cricket Academy.

These camps would be followed by a conditioning camp for the players selected for Ireland and England tours (on June 12) at the NCA from June 13-16, a BCCI statement said.

Among those selected for the batsmen's camp is Mohd Kaif, largely out of favour with the selectors recently, while Harbhajan Singh, Ajit Agarkar and Irfan Pathan, ignored for the Bangladesh tour, have got the nod for the bowlers' camp.

Selected players for the two camps:

Bowlers' camp (June 4-8 at Mysore): Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh, V R V Singh, Ishant Sharma, S Sreesanth, Ajit Agarkar, Irfan Pathan, Ranadeb Bose, Munaf Patel, Anil Kumble, Ramesh Powar, Rajesh Pawar, Harbhajan Singh and Pragyan Oza.

Leg spinner Piyush Chawla and medium pacer V Yo Mahesh have not been included in the bowlers' camp as they would be leaving for training at the Australian Cricket Academy on June 2.

Batsmen's camp (June 9-12 at Bangalore): Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Wasim Jaffer, V V S Laxman, Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, Virender Sehwag, Dinesh Mongia, M S Dhoni, Dinesh Kartik, Rohit Sharma, Mohd Kaif, S Badrinath and Yuvraj Singh.
