According to sources, all the players barring one have arrived in the city for the camp, which will be held at the Motibaug ground, which is owned by the royal Gaikwad family.

Jammu and Kashmir cricketers could not train for the upcoming domestic season due to the communication clampdown in the region but had managed to get together after their Cricket Association (JKCA) last week put out advertisements on local TV channels to get in touch with players from the valley.

Communication in Kashmir valley has been restricted by the government after the abrogation of the provisions of Article 370, which gave the state special status.
