BANGALORE - Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh Saturday visited a temple here and pace spearhead Zaheer Khan took the day off as the Indian team wound up its four-day preparatory camp for the World Cup beginning Feb 19.
Harbhajan went to the ‘Shani temple’, devoted to Hindu god Shani or Saturn in Thyagarajanagar in south Bangalore and offered prayers. He spent about half-an-hour at the temple.
Except for Zaheer, the other team members led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni went through fielding, bowling and batting practice for about three hours before calling it a day. They take on the Australians in a warm-up game here Sunday.
The warm-up game is a day and night show at the Chinnaswamy Stadium which is expected to be full to its capacity of 50,000.
