An application “Work from Home” has been launched by the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) to train their players and create a connection via platform among coaches, players, and support staff.
The major aim of BCCI is to train their players physically and mentally. As amid the Coronavirus outbreak, there is no cricket for months, the board has decided to introduce some physical activity for players.
Consequently, they have launched an application that consists of questionnaires, discussion forums, and chat rooms. The app will be guiding players as it has individuals and teams performances video in it. Also, it will be guiding players to come over a frequent injury.
BCCI launches ‘work from home’ app amid Coronavirus for players’ training
Arun Dhumal, the BCCI treasurer has explained the working of the app. “It’s a step-wise process that’s been put in place and the secretary (Jay Shah) is reviewing the progress on a daily basis,” BCCI treasurer told The Times of India. “What we’ve tried to do is divide this process into different phases. Aspects pertaining to the physical and mental health of our cricketers, professional assistance online, monitoring of diets, fitness sessions etc are being conducted on a daily basis.”
“It’s a rare opportunity to introspect,” Rathour was quoted as saying by the English daily. “It is the players who are doing the talking. I’m trying to listen and work around the topics that are being brought up. We have an app. We’ve started to put videos in that app. Simple things about facing a certain kind of bowler or foot movement, any particular way a batsman has been getting out, what’s worked for him what hasn’t,” he explained.
