Team India will undergo a fitness test on Saturday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata ahead of their tour of Bangladesh, which is scheduled to start on 10 June.
The fitness test was scheduled in the morning but was postponed because of sultry weather conditions in Kolkata.
The Indian Cricket Team arrived in Kolkata on Friday for a training camp at the Eden Gardens ahead of their tour. Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli and the interim team director arrived on Friday evening.
The players are likely to hit the gym followed by a session of swimming at the team hotel. Team India will fly to Dhaka on Monday morning post the training camp.
Of late, the players have been suffering from injuries but have kept the authorities in the dark. Hence, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided that all the players need to undergo a fitness test before setting off on any tour. Previously, only the injured players had to undergo this fitness test.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh announced their squad for the one-off Test match against India on Wednesday, scheduled at Fatullah. Rubel Hossain returned to the Test squad, as he replaced Shahadat Hossain. Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim will be leading the Bangladesh side in the upcoming one-off Test.
He might not be seen behind the wickets as he suffered a finger injury during the first Test match against Pakistan and that might lead the selectors to choose 20-year old Litton Das, who has had a good domestic season with the bat.
Mashrafe Mortaza also suffered a minor injury in a road accident while on his way to Sher-e-Bangla Stadium for a training session, but according to reports, it is not a serious issue. Mahmudullah has been ruled out of the series due to a fracture during the training session.
On the other hand, Harbhajan Singh, who was recalled in the Test squad will be in limelight as he is likely to share the ball with Ravichandran Ashwin in the one-off Test match at Fatullah.
India will be playing a one-off Test match and three One-Day Internationals during this three week long tour in Bangladesh.
