Kolkata:Amidst uncertainty over his participation in the coming Challengers tournament due to aright elbow injury, Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly today underwent a gym and fitness routine at the Eden Gardens here today.

Ganguly, who will consult Indian team physio John Gloster and BCCI's medical panel chief Anant Joshi in Mumbai tomorrow on his injury, spent around one and half hours at the Eden Gardens where he did nine laps of the ground and used the facilities at the adjoining indoor gymnasium.

Ganguly, who refused to speak to the media, stayed away from the nets so as not to strain his injured elbow.

Though Ganguly himself has so far remained non-committal about playing the Challengers in Mohali, where he has been named skipper of the India seniors squad coached by Greg Chappell, his participation now hinges on advice from Joshi and Gloster.

The southpaw has already intimated the board about his injury sustained during a practice game in Zimbabwe last month.

Ganguly had on Monday consulted a city orthopaedic, Kalyan Mukherjee, who advised an MRI, the report of which would be shown to John Gloster.

Both Ganguly and Mukherjee have remained silent about the nature of the injury amidst speculation that it could be the early stage of a tennis elbow which has been troubling master batsman Sachin Tendulkar for more than a year.
