Virender Sehwag resumed rehabilitation stint for his right shoulder at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) here on Tuesday.

Sehwag, who had left for Delhi during the weekend, met the Delhi District Cricket Association President Arun Jaitley on Monday to discuss the contentious issues he had raised and returned to the academy on Tuesday morning. Sehwag is expected to be at the academy for another week.

The opener, who underwent a corrective surgery on his injured shoulder in London during June, has been a regular at the NCA over the last few months. He earlier visited the academy on June 29 and July 15 before this latest session here from August 17.

Physio Paul Close is monitoring Sehwag’s recovery from the surgery.

Meanwhile, the four-day preparatory camp for the Indian squad for the tri-series in Sri Lanka and the Champions Trophy in South Africa will commence here on Thursday.
