Ind vs Pak

Tendulkar, India squad practice at semifinal venue

MOHALI: India's World Cup squad was greeted by a crowd of about 150 fans as they arrived at their first training session at the PCA Stadium ahead of Wednesday's much-hyped semifinal against Pakistan.

The team was led off the bus by star batsman Sachin Tendulkar. Local hero Yuvraj Singh was the last to head into the stadium, but was the only player to stop to sign autographs.

While the rest of his teammates began a football kickabout at the PCA Stadium, Tendulkar typically opted to practice a few of his famous strokes with a new bat before joining in.

Only Harbhajan Singh did not attend the session as he visited his home in nearby Jalandhar.

Virender Sehwag, still recovering from a knee problem, joined batting and fielding drills.
