Team India’s strength and conditioning coach reveals why they chose to train in Perth

New Delhi: Soham Desai, the strength and conditioning coach of the Indian cricket team, believes that the national team often goes straight into major tournaments, but a training camp ahead of the T20 World Cup will help players adapt to Australian conditions.

India took part in their first practice session on Friday. The Men in Blue will play two warm-up matches in Perth on October 10-13 before moving to Brisbane where they are scheduled to compete in the ICC-hosted warm-up matches. Rohit Sharma & Co. kick off their World Cup campaign with a game against nemesis Pakistan in Melbourne on October 23.

In a video shared by BCCI, Desai said: “The next 8-10 days will be very crucial for us leading up to the World Cup. We can’t thank the team management and the BCCI enough for getting these 8 days because we always feel have that we are pushed into the big tournaments, play cricket as much as the Indian team, but these 8 days we are going to build ourselves up gradually, both physically and in terms of skills, to lead us nicely to the first game at the World Cup. “

When asked why team India chose Perth specifically, Desai said: “The goal in Perth is specifically to get some time on these pitches and to break the monotony of playing the bilateral series back to back in India. So it’s about being a good time for the group to relax and build on the specific skills needed for Australia. That’s the overall plan, leading up to the World Cup.”
