The players who attended the camp were Manish Pandey, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Aman Khan and Praveen Dubey. Sourav was extremely impressed with the big hitting of Aman Khan in the nets.
The former India captain also had a long session with pacer duo Khaleel Ahmed and Kamalesh Nagarkoti. Both the pacers were seen practicing yorkers with markers on the pitch.
Meanwhile, DC Head Coach Ricky Ponting will join the squad from the main camp in Delhi. The overseas cricketers like Rovman Powell, Mustafizur Rahman will arrive this week in India.
