Indian captain Rahul Dravid on Saturday insisted the ‘outward bound training’ camp will improve team spirit and bonding among players.
“We have used this camp to give people new experiences, new opportunities. I think the challenge for us is to not just help them grow as cricketers but also as people,” Dravid said.
Expressing hope that medium-pacer Irfan Pathan would bounce back in the coming triangular series in Sri Lanka, Dravid commended Pathan's self-effort to improve his performance. "Irfan came early to the camp on his own. None of us asked him to do that."
