It’s been a combination of yoga and physical training by King. Has it worked?
At the yoga sessions, we do some stretching exercises in the morning. They help because our bodies go stiff by the end of training everyday. So, we stretch in the morning and get going at the camp. King has done well so far. He has jelled well with the team. But it’s too early for me to say more about him now.

Are you training specially to build endurance levels for the series against the Kiwis?
The training will be the same, but the mindset has to change (for a Test series). To do that, we start off with the Challenger series and then play the Irani Trophy matches. By the time the first Test starts, we would be alright.
