NCA to Host Fitness Camp Ahead of Asia Cup 2022

The National Cricket Academy (NCA) will host a mandatory fitness camp for Team India on August 20 under the leadership of captain Rohit Sharma. On August 23, The Men in Blue are supposed to leave for Dubai. Starting today, team members are expected to assemble in Bengaluru.

The India team will depart for Dubai on the 23rd following the fitness camp at the NCA, where they will have yet another brief camp before playing their opening game of the Asia Cup. On August 28, India will launch their offensive against Pakistan. The winner of the qualifier will play India after the Pakistan match.

Before a major tournament, the team must take a fitness test at the national camp. The Indian senior and T20 teams are currently on vacation, but the players will now be expected to concentrate on their next competition.

Deepak Hooda and Avesh Khan, who is playing in the Zimbabwe ODIs as well as the Asia Cup, will depart for Dubai immediately following the series’ completion on August 22. They will not be required to participate in the mandatory fitness test or training camp, but they will join the rest of the team on August 23. Deepak Chahar will travel as well after being selected as a standby for the Asia Cup in 2022.

Talking about the intense match between India and Pakistan, captain Rohit Sharma said, “For me as a captain, it is very important that we create an environment for the players where they don’t feel that it’s a very high-pressure environment. We try and create (an environment) for the guys to come out in this team and try to have fun and enjoy each other’s company. Because I strongly feel that it’s important not to allow the pressure to creep in too much.”

When you’re playing, obviously, there will be pressure because when you are holding the ball in your hand, there is pressure on you as a bowler. When you’re batting in the middle, there is pressure, and that is what you have to handle on your own. The captain or coach or anyone, no one can do anything about it, but yourself. So, I think those aspects – Of course, it is your responsibility, but there are so many other factors that come into play and I feel I need to take care of it.”

India Asia Cup squad: Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Dinesh Karthik (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan.

Standby: Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar, Axar Patel
