Kolkata:Little master Sachin Tendulkar skipped batting at the nets on the opening day of the three-day conditioning camp in Kolkata ahead of the tour to Pakistan.

Tendulkar, instead, confined himself to a fitness routine at the indoor gymnasium in the Eden Gardens. Later, he did some physical exercises on the ground.

A team source said the dampness on the ground due to unseasonal rains might have prompted the batting genius to refrain from a stint with the willow at the nets.

Asked whether Tendulkar had any problem, Indian vice-captain Rahul Dravid said ''I am not aware of any such thing.'' Skipper Sourav Ganguly also said that Tendulkar was fine.
