Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh skipped the optional training session at the National Cricket Academy here on Wednesday. Pace spearhead Zaheer Khan, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Suresh Raina and Virender Sehwag also opted to stay away from the optional training session.

Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, however, was among those who went through the one-hour training drills ahead of India s March 6 Group B clash against Ireland.

Team India won their opening game against Bangladesh before settling for an exciting tie against England at Bengaluru.
