Team India to start World Cup practice
Bangalore: The first Team India practice session for World Cup 2011 preparations start at 2:00 PM today, Wednesday, with players flying in to Bangalore for the training required for the mega-event.
The Indian outfit would slug it out at the KSCA B ground, housing the Karnataka Cricket Academy (KCA) and National Cricket Academy (NCA). Both the academies will provide the practice pitches for the players to get a look and feel of the conditions.
However, Dhoni’s men would not be given a chance to play on the actual ground which will see the World Cup action. Teams will be allowed in the main Chinnaswamy Stadium ground only for fielding practice under lights closer to the matches.
Battling some fitness issues, the Indian squad would hope for a good stretch at the practice venues and regain some confidence.
