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.
Bharat Arun, the bowling coach of the Indian Cricket Team, thinks that six-eight weeks of training camp sessions are must be needed for Team India before they step at the international level.
India Cricket Team need 6-8 weeks training camp sessions
The players were supposed to play the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Coronavirus has stopped the flow of the Indian Premier League (IPL) that was to be commenced by 29th March. It faced many obstacles in its way of scheduling as the lockdown kept on extending and still exists amidst the Coronavirus. Now, there are no comments over the authentic schedule for IPL. The case is very similar for the other T20 leagues and other cricketing scenarios across the globe due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
“For a professional sportsperson, to be sitting at home doing nothing can be very frustrating. Not being able to expand that energy is like a curse. It can be boring, can be extremely monotonous. But there’s no choice and therefore it’s a challenge that has to be taken up,” Arun was quoted as saying in The Times of India (TOI).
“The team management has identified that the cricketers will need camp lasting six to eight weeks to conduct this elevated training and optimum skill-based program before they can walk out to play international cricket,” he stated.
