He was very comfortable while taking high catches and a few slip catches as well. He also batted for a long time and faced young quick bowlers with ease, the sources added. Tendulkar also practiced running between the wickets and felt no pain whatsoever and was looking forward to the South African tour starting from September 24, the sources said.The South Africa-bound Indian team members are scheduled to undergo fitness test on September 22 and 23 before the team leaves for South Africa.
