[RxPG] Kolkata, May 4 - On the third day of a five-day conditioning camp ahead of the Indian cricket team's tour of Bangladesh, former captain Sourav Ganguly was seen playing some aggressive strokes at the Eden Gardens here Friday.

The big crowd that had gathered at the stadium was treated with huge over-boundaries played by their hero who seemed to be in perfect harness.

Ganguly gave rookie leg-spinner Piyush Chawla some demoralising lessons hitting him for a huge six with the ball landing in the stands.

Out-of-form batsman Virendra Sehwag also looked comfortable against the pace attack of S. Sreeshanth and Munaf Patel.

The morning session of the regular practice schedule Friday was devoted only to batting and bowling. In the evening session, the players were seen concentrating on their physical fitness training.

Among the bowlers, Zaheer Khan maintained a consistent line and length and the bowling performance of Patel was also impressive.

Bengal pacer Ranadeb Bose struggled with the ball as he was treated with contempt by most of the batsmen, especially Sehwag.

Sreeshanth, however, was not seen too much with the ball on the field.

Sachin Tendulkar, who twisted his ankle Wednesday resulting in a minor leg injury, was seen doing some light batting practice during the session.

The session also saw some of the players like Manoj Tiwari, Yuvraj Singh and Tendulkar doing some stretching exercises conducted by renowned yoga guru Sukhdev Kumar, who flew in from Singapore Wednesday evening.

Sukhdev gave special attention to Sachin Tendulkar helping him with his stretching to see that the master blaster regained his complete fitness.

He also stressed on the relaxation factor and performed various methods of pranayam - reminding the players about the importance of taking care of the mind along with the body.

The entire session was conducted under the watchful eyes of newly appointed team manager Ravi Shastri who was also seen engaged in a discussion with Tendulkar, who came in to do some light fielding and batting practice in the day's second session.
