Fielding coach Jonty Rhodes and left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha joined the Mumbai Indians team for practice at the Wankhede Stadium today.
Under Rhodes’ watch, the players were seen practicing in batches. Wicketkeeper-batsman Sushant Marathe was one of the first to train on his wicketkeeping. The rest of the players were later given catching, throwing and fielding practice. The South African engaged in discussions with the cricketers regarding techniques to enhance their fielding during the sessions.
Marathe continued to slog it out in the field and kept practicing with other coaches and trainers between sessions with Rhodes. Ojha bowled and later batted for while.
Another wicketkeeper batsman in the Mumbai Indians line-up, Ambati Rayudu was amongst those who took the opportunity to hit the bowlers all over the park. India player RP Singh, who is in his first season with the Mumbai franchise, also had a bowl and a session with the bat – apart from some fielding practice.
Although some of their stars are yet to join the team, the Mumbai Indians have already shown their eagerness in their training sessions to make a run for the league trophy in IPL 2012.
IPL bigwigs Mumbai Indians began their preparations for the 2012 season on their home ground, Wankhede Stadium, last evening.
Mumbai Indians, who had a memorable season last year, finishing at the No. 3 spot in IPL 2011 and winning CLT20 2011, began their training sessions under coach Robin Singh, assistant coach Paras Mhambrey and bowling coach Maninder Singh.
Amongst those practicing were RP Singh, Ambati Rayudu, Dhawal Kulkarni, Tirumalasetti Suman, and Sushant Marathe. The players sweat it out in the Mumbai heat for about three hours, primarily batting and bowling.
While MI skipper Sachin Tendulkar and batsman Rohit Sharma were away on national duty, youngster Surya Kumar Yadav was also absent from the net session, representing the West Zone in the Deodhar Trophy domestic tournament.
Apart from the iconic Tendulkar, the high profile team also boasts crowd-pullers like Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga, Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and South African sensation Richard Levi.
