It would not be wrong to say that the world is currently going through an unprecedented level of danger as almost all kinds of have activities have been suspended. The mass outbreak of COVID-19 has now hit more than 200 countries. As a result, more than 1,300,000 people have caught the virus while approximately 71000 deaths have been recorded.
Like other activities, cricket has also been suspended and players have been limited to their residences. In such a situation, Sri Lankan head coach Mickey Arthur revealed that he has provided his players with home-based fitness plans to stay in shape. The 51-year old added that cricketers need to be properly ready for cricket when things return to normalcy.
“The players all have individual fitness plans to keep them up to speed their levels of fitness. Those plans are tailored to the facilities that each player has at his disposal at home to maintain the expected fitness levels,” said Mickey Arthur in his interview with Sri Lanka Cricket’s media.
