Chennai: The Indian cricket team`s brief two-day camp came to an abrupt end today after a sudden downpour forced the players indoors at the M A Chidambaram stadium.

Heavy rains at around 5:15 pm local time forced the closure of the camp about two hours before the scheduled time.

The 15-member Indian team will be leaving for Sri Lanka tomorrow afternoon to play in a five-match ODI series followed by a Twenty20 International, commencing on July 21 at Hambantota.

During the two-day training camp, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team had strenuous sessions in the limited time they got.

The camp started yesterday under the watchful eyes of coach Duncan Fletcher, bowling coach Joe Dawes and fielding coach Trevor Penny.

After a stretching and physical conditioning session on both the days, the players assembled for the usual football match that lasted for about 20 minutes.

Later, the players took to net sessions also.
