Indian Skipper Virat Kohli said that staying in lengthy ‘bubbles’ is not sustainable as it takes a toll on players’ mental well-being.
Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony,
“As I said, a couple of days ago as well, scheduling is something that needs to be looked at in the future.”
“Because playing in bubbles for so long, two-three months is going to be very, very difficult going forward.”
Virat’s statement comes before head into another restricted environment for two months for the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Indian players will join their respective franchises for the bubble environment in IPL with eight teams, the tournament will be played from April 9 to May 30.
India will then play against New Zealand for the World Test Championship final which will start from 18th June in Southampton.
Kohli further added to his statement that,
“You can’t expect everyone to be at the same level of mental strength,”
“Sometimes you do get cooked, and you do feel like a bit of change. I’m sure that things will be discussed and things will change in the future as well.”
