The official stressed saying that the fitness level of players would be badly adverse if they directly step towards international cricket, hence, training is necessary. He thinks that after being quarantines for 50-60 days, fitness level must have been drab.
“See! This is not really possible Fitness training is one thing and training with the bat and ball is a completely different thing. We have guys who haven’t touched a bat or ball in a training environment in the last 50-60 days. How do you expect them to go out and play international matches?
“Yes, they have been doing their best to keep their fitness level up to the mark set by our trainers, but batting and bowling sessions will be needed,” he said according to the quint.
He maintained discussing if August will be impossible, both boards will have their eyes on the window which will be vacant and easy to go with mutually for CSA and BCCI.
