Nagpur: Eight players, including new recruits Ankit Rajpoot and Rahul Tewatia, will sweat it out for the next three days at a new training facility at Talegaon as Rajasthan Royals on Monday began its pre-season camp for Indian cricketers ahead of next year's IPL.
The Indian cricketers, who are part of the Rajasthan Royals' squad for the upcoming season, will undergo training for three days under the watchful eyes of head of Cricket, Zubin Bharucha.
He will be supported by batting coach Amol Mazumdar, spin bowling coach Sairaj Bahutule and UK Academy director Sid Lahiri. The Royals physiotherapist John Gloster is also part of the camp.
"This camp is an opportunity to review the level of development of our players over the last 7 months. We will be reviewing both their technical and physical progress to set clear plans for the build up to the IPL," said Bharucha.
"Furthermore after the trading window this will be an extremely beneficial few days to integrate our new players into the Royals family and get a closer look at their outstanding skills."
In the next three days, the Indian cricketers will not only train in open nets but also simulate match scenarios with the coaches sharing development plans with each player to help them prepare for the season.
