Amidst the Coronavirus outbreak, no cricket is happening nowadays. It is even hard to think of rescheduling the canceled and delayed leagues as no one can say when the situations will get better.
As a consequence, players are restricted to their homes with their families during quarantine days. As they have gotten no physical activity and the games to play at an outdoor level, their form and fitness scale probably will be in trouble. Being formless can make them suffer at international levels, Therefore, it is necessary to maintain and hold proper training session camps at least for six to eight weeks to regain the fitness to be sustainable at the international levels.
Dinesh Karthik, the Indian cricket player thinks that almost four weeks of training is necessary before starting proper cricket. He thinks that his body has gone into the zombie mode while sitting without physical activity.
Dinesh Karthik on no cricket for months, ‘The body has turned in Zombie Mode’
“I think the transition will be very tough. I think at least a minimum of four weeks, you need to start slowly, first, it will be quality and then slowly increase the quantity and then the intensity. Right now the lockdown has eased a lot in Chennai, so you can get permission and go and practice, so I am planning to do that but I will do it gradually … the body has been completely in zombie mode, with me sitting at home and not doing much,” he said while speaking to ESPNCricinfo.
Earlier, Arun Dhumal, the treasurer of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), has revealed that the Indian board is thinking of organizing the training camp sessions for India Cricket players.
