Despite the fact, some other cricketingnations have already began it in their respective countries.
But, after a virtual meeting with 35 players, the board decided to begin the individualtraining that was largely decorated with fitness drills. The bowlers didn’t get the chance to bowl as they left satisfied with just running and doing gym. The batsmen, however, got the chance to bat but at the bowling machine in indoor facilities.
