"The camp went off very well. Guys worked pretty hard throughout. I am happy with the way it has gone. It's been a good camp. Pretty much a success I would say," King said at the end of it all.
From Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag to Ashish Nehra, Zaheer Khan, L Balaji and Irfan Pathan; they were all there, rubbing shoulders with each others, in quest to become fitter. Fitness was the mantra they chanted since the camp commenced on Sunday.
It has been a pretty much a routine thereafter; after an hour-long yoga sessions in a five-star hotel where they are put up, they would head to the premises of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) or the adjacent M Chinnaswamy stadium and go through the fitness paces under watchful eyes of King.
Physical conditioning apart, they played a game or two of frisbee and volley-ball, shared a few light moments; all with the intention to see that it does not become all-fitness-drills-and-no-fun.
And King wants them to sing fitness mantra throughout the year, at least till they kick off the campaign opener - Asia Cup in Sri Lanka in mid-July.
"They have to train throughout the year...put in efforts till the campaign starts in Sri Lanka," he said.
Vice-captain Rahul Dravid added: "It was a good camp. Nice to get back after sometime off after Pakistan, and get into the scene of things."
