The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League marked the resurgence of cricket for Indian players, and they have been constantly on the road since then. The Indian contingent is currently stationed in Ahmedabad for the India vs England T20 series, and a source recently shed light on the therapies that the cricketers are using for relaxation and fitness amidst the rigorous tour. Here is what the cricket board revealed regarding the players' routines.
According to the information provided to Republic World, the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and others prefer deep tissue massage for a minimum of 90 minutes. This is because they have to deal with stiff shoulders, glutes, and hamstring and calf muscles after their training sessions. As per the report, sometimes the muscles are so stiff that there is a need to use a fusion of deep tissue and hot stone to release the knots and loosen the muscle. Considering India's injury-marred Australia tour, the Ravi Shastri-led think tank will be keen to make sure the cricketers get enough time to recover after a training session or a game.
The report also suggests that most players love to take steam after the massage as it helps to continue the relaxation of the muscles and the removal of toxins. Moreover, the tailor-made deep tissue sports massage also includes a lot of areas of concerned thumb pressure, palm pressure and knuckling techniques. As for the visitors, the English cricketers love the swimming pool and they also enjoy sunbathing.
The series is evenly poised as both the participating nations have a victory each to their names. The upcoming contest promises to be an enthralling one for the fans, as both teams are expected to go all guns blazing in the crucial encounter. It is worth mentioning that the match will be played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus situation in Ahmedabad. The India vs England 3rd T20 will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Tuesday, March 16.
