Concerns in the Australia camp over Michael Clarke's hamstring stiffness appear to be easing after the skipper completed a series of run-throughs during the touring team's two-day game in Chennai on Wednesday.
Clarke was rested from the game against an Indian Board XI but is a chance to play the three-day match against India A starting on Saturday.
Australia's entire 17-man squad has now assembled in Chennai after completing commitments with the one-day series at home against West Indies.
Clarke jogged laps along the boundary at Guru Nanak College Ground before lunch on Wednesday.
Test cricket's No.2-ranked batsman completed the session of about 20 minutes without any apparent concerns in an encouraging sign that the 31-year-old will be fit for the first Test starting on February 22.
The fitness of Clarke and opener David Warner (thumb) will be assessed ahead of Saturday's tour game which will also be played at the Guru Nanak College Ground.
Clarke carried a hamstring problem through the final two Tests of the three-Test series at home against Sri Lanka in December-January and missed Australia's fifth and final one-day clash with West Indies in Melbourne on February 10 after reporting hamstring soreness.
