We know that Indian cricket players play the most Cricket than any other team. So it’s very rare that they get to rest for much.
But due to this ongoing Covid-19, International Cricket along with domestic Cricket has been postponed for now.
Indian team’s head coach, Ravi Shastri says that this ongoing break is like a welcome rest for Indian players who hardly get rest in normal days.
Ravi Shastri, himself has been only 10-12 days at his home since leaving for World Cup last May.
According to Ravi Shastri, the forced break caused by Coronavirus is like a welcome Rest for Indian cricket players.
And that they can re-energise themselves with this much-needed break.
“(This rest) cannot be a bad thing because towards the end of the New Zealand tour, you could see some cracks coming up when it came to mental fatigue, physical fitness and injuries,” Ravi Shastri said.
Shastri said that Indian players can use this break as an opportunity to regain the energy especially after the gruelling tour to New Zealand.
The tour to New Zealand was a very big tour where India played 5 T20’s, 3 ODI’s and two tests.
Ravi Shastri said that they have played a lot of cricket and he himself has been only 10-12 days at his home since he left for World Cup last May.
“The amount of cricket we have played over the last ten months, that was beginning to take its toll. Guys like me, and some other guys from the support staff, we left India on May 23 for the World Cup in England. Since then we have been at home for 10 or 11 days.
“So it has been tough but a welcome rest for players,” the coach said.
