Lockdown has forced all cricketing activities to be put on hold for a few months. Slowly, players are getting back to normal and would be attending training sessions at nets. The Indian Test specialist batsman Cheteshwar Pujara reveals how he has overcome mental stress during the lockdown due to covid-19.
It was around three months after Pujara played cricket for Saurashtra and helped in winning their maiden Ranji Trophy title. Since then the nation was under strict lockdown with players being restricted to participate in any tournaments and training sessions. But with eased restrictions in the country, Cheteswar Pujara returns to the training camp this week.
He said that spending time indoors doesn’t allow coping with the play. However when you get to play outdoors in the sun and outdoors, you get used to playing better, said Pujara in an interview. He said that he is getting trained at his academy with other Saurashtra teammates. He said he would be gradually increasing the intensity of the net sessions.
