The Indian Cricket team reached new heights after they won their world cup league match against West Indies. They became the No.1 team in ODI rankings by dethroning Australia, which was then taken over by England after they won the World Cup. Kohli, who is the Indian skipper, shared the importance of GPS trackers in fitness.
He described how the trackers help the team and management understand how much workload the players take and assess it before future assignments. The Indian team didn’t have to travel before the semi- final match with New Zealand, which is plus.
Virat shared, that it is vital to monitor the fitness of players. With the level of game being higher than ever, the players should pay attention to fitness. The Indian Captain himself is a fitness freak. He said how the GPS trackers help the players to compartmentalize their work and travel.
He said- “The GPS trackers that we have been wearing has helped track the workload of the players. And that has actually helped the physio and trainer to convince the guys when they must rest. As staying fresh for the game is of paramount importance.“
“Well, again this turnaround was very fast after the last game, a day of travel, today one practice day, so guys depending on the workloads which is provided by our trainers and physios. We understand which player needs to take a break from practice because having played so many games, you don’t necessarily need to go hit balls again because you have practiced so much and you have played in the middle as well.”
The Indian team did not make it to the finals of the ICC World Cup, and lost to the black caps – New Zealand.
