An official revealed to IANS how the trainers are keeping an eye on Team India players during this long break. The source claimed that the boys are being monitored on a daily basis.

How Team India being monitored

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the world to go on a long break. The sporting events were called off with no expected date of resuming. Cricket was no exception. India’s series against South Africa was cancelled after the first match. The IPL was postponed at least till April 15. Meanwhile, the whole country was sent for a 21-day lockdown. But whatever the situation may, the cricketers are not allowed to be unfit. They are given customised workout charts for this period and the process is being constantly monitored on the Athlete Monitoring System (AMS) by trainer Nick Webb and physio Nitin Patel.

According to a team management source’s information given to IANS, “Assessments are on every day as the progress of the players are checked by Nick and Nitin once the boys put in their data on the app.”

Customized charts with cheat for all

He also informed that the charts were prepared based on individual requirements and demands. “The routines have been created keeping in mind the demands of the players. So, for example, a bowler has been given exercises which work to make his core and lower body strong. Similarly, a batsman has been given exercises which also work on his shoulders and wrists.”

The source further added that the cricketers are allowed to have one or two cheat meals during this period but can not be too casual. He claimed that the current set of cricketers are too professional and never think of going high on calories. The credit was given to Virat Kohli who actually set the culture in the team. “These boys are too professional to even think of going on an eating spree. The culture set in this team by skipper Kohli himself is such that they all know that a cheat meal here and there is fine, but nothing at the cost of their fitness standards taking a hit. Also, with the AMS App, they can themselves understand when they can indulge in high-calorie food and when they should keep away.”
