Bangalore:Coach Greg Chappell, whose public spat with Sourav Ganguly made headlines in recent times, declined to speak to scribes, most of whom spent nearly a whole day to get "quotes" and "sound-bites".

Members of the electronic media sought to cajole Tendulkar to give "sound-bites" as he was sipping tea, but the batting maestro, who was in a jovial mood, quipped: "I amhaving biscuit bites" as he picked up a biscuit.

Reporters were keen to know details of the camp, coming as it does before a gruelling home season ahead that will see Team India playing 12 one-day internationals -- seven against Lankans and five against South Africa -- besides three tests against Sri Lanka.

But they were kept at bay and "roped" out to ensure that they were not able to get close to the players.

Meanwhile, Anil Kumble and Mohammed Kaif, who are under rehabilitation, spent some time with Gloster, who is supervising their progress on this front.
