The Indian Test squad sweated it out for the second successive day of their preparatory camp at the M Chinnaswamy stadium here ahead of the Test series against Australia.

If the first day was about Test match simulation, a warm Saturday saw the Indians giving a attention to fielding as well with fielding coach Trevor Penny putting them through the grind for nearly two hours.

The lone point of alarm came when Harbhajan Singh was hit on the front toe by a net bowler while polishing his skills with the bat. The off-spinner appeared to be in considerable pain but he soon resumed batting to allay the worries.

Meanwhile, Sachin Tendulkar spent a few minutes with members of the IDL Foundation, a charity organisation for the blind, after the training session. They also met Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
