Coronavirus has brought the Earth and its specifications and activities to a standstill. Economies, businesses, sports, and in fact every minor thing has been affected. Cricket, being one of the major and lovable sport, has been influenced adversely due to the lockdown across the globe amid Coronavirus outbreak.
Also, as there are no physical activities amidst the outbreak, players have been deprived of professional workout for so long which has affected their fitness level. Hence, training camps are a must before stepping into the ground for International cricket.
The treasurer of BCCI, Arun Dhumal has revealed BCCI is hopeful of organizing the training camps in the second half of July.
BCCI hopeful for holding the training camp sessions for Indian cricket players
Arun Dhumal revealed NCA is reading the guidelines given by state government in order to discuss the possibilities such as venue selection. He discussed to get players to a single venue rather than choosing the multiple ones.
“National Cricket Academy (NCA) is studying the guidelines given by state governments and we are discussing all possibilities, like potential venues and travel. Once we are 100% sure that we can get the players to one particular venue, we will.
Arun thinks National Cricket Academy is the venue to go with for the training camps as choosing multiple venues can cause health hurdles amidst the Coronavirus outbreak. Once the situation eases completely, especially the travel restrictions, BCCI is to kick off the cricket season.
“We have shortlisted venues, NCA is one, rest options being discussed but we are hopeful that in the second half of June, a camp will be possible if things keep on improving and especially with travel restrictions being eased,” BCCI Treasurer said while speaking to Times Now.
