Denied of physical development and no cricket for such a long time may have disturbed their fitness levels. Subsequently, they can not step in the ground at the international level straight.
Bharat Arun, the bowling trainer of the Indian player’s Cricket Team, believes that just about six to eight months of training camp sessions would be required to recover players’ fitness levels to typical before venturing into the universal level.
India cricket players need 6-8 weeks for training camps sessions
“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.
