According to a BCCI official, the board is hoping to host camp for the cricketers in the months of August- September.
Speaking to IANS, he said that the intention is to resume the action once the monsoon ends.
The official explained the board plans to the news agency, “Looking at getting ready for once monsoon ends. Should be around the August-September window that we will get the players together and work on their game and get them back into the zone.”
He opined that the mental aspect of the players should be taken care of majorly as the cricketers have been already keeping themselves busy in physical training under the guidance of the head coach and support staffs.
“You have to understand that there is a muscle memory that needs tuning and these guys are all professionals. So, it will be more about the mental aspect than the physical aspect as they have already been working on their fitness even during lockdown.”
He further added that the venue is not finalized yet. The board is waiting for the government guidelines regarding inter-state movement to take a call. So whether the National Cricket Academy at Bangalore will be the venue for the camp or not, that is yet under consideration.
He explained, “Too early to say that. Let inter-state movement get further relaxed, let’s see how things stand in a month or so and then we can decide on whether the camp will be at the NCA or somewhere else.”
