Panaji, May 12 (UNI) The Indian Premier League (IPL) contestant Rajasthan Royals captain Shane Warne and his six teammates arrived here today for a three-day rest.
The Australian off-spinner along with Goa's prolific Ranji star Swapnil Asnodkar, South African skipper Graeme Smith, Shane Watson, Taruwar Kole, Ravindra Jadeja and N Patel arrived at the Dabolim airport and went straight to Taj Village at Candolim in North Goa, where they will stay for three days.
Players avoided meeting the media both at the airport and at the hotel.
According to sources, only seven players have come to Goa for relaxation, as there is a gap of five days, before their next match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 17.
Although no programme has been finalised in Goa, players are likely to enjoy the state's silver sand beaches before leaving for Jaipur on May 14.
