“When we talk about workload management, we are looking at the number of overs a bowler has bowled. But then a bowler can over-exert himself in a game and that is not under your control. So we use the GPS tracker to monitor all his movements on the field,” he was quoted as saying by The Times of India.
He has termed the GPS tracker as the reason behind why players’ movements are been recorded and managed accordingly including workload at training sessions. Once the right balance is found, the bowling unit and bowlers stamina for pace can be improved, this is the reason why India got a successful pace attack according to the bowling coach of the national team.
“For example, a bowler runs around 20 km on the field. And the tracker gives us a lot of data and information about the bowler concerned. By analyzing this data, you can manage the workload at training sessions. Basically, you need to find the right balance. And the Indian bowlers have managed to do that so far,” he said. “This is the reason why we are successful as a bowling unit and the bowlers can bowl at 140 mph regularly,” he added.
