Jay Shah on Addressing Player Injuries: Every State Will Appoint Strength And Conditioning Coach, Have Sports Medicine Team

The BCCI has decided to require its state units to select their own strength and conditioning trainers and have sports science and sports medicine teams in place in light of the recent spate of injuries among Indian players.

The National Cricket Academy panel will examine strength and conditioning coaches for each state unit, it was determined during the Board's Special General Meeting (SGM) on Saturday.

Every state association will hire a strength and conditioning coach as well as a sport science and sports medicine staff in order to address players' injury concerns. The NCA panel will interview the nominees, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said during the SGM.

Many Indian players, especially fast bowlers, were forced to spend the most of last year at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore due to injury.

Prior to their limited-overs trip to Bangladesh in July of this year, Shah said, the Indian women's squad would have a head coach named. Three ODIs and three T20Is make up the visit.

The head coach for the women's squad has already been chosen from the shortlist, according to Shah. The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) will convene and make the appropriate decisions. Before the Bangladesh series, we could have a new head coach for the women's squad.

He said that India A tours have helped players get acclimated to the difficulties and exposed them to different situations. He claimed that the Indian Cricket Board is in discussions with its counterparts in England and different Zealand to schedule such trips.

Shah was addressing here on the eve of the IPL championship game between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings.

We are presently in contact with England and New Zealand on India 'A' shadow tours, added Shah.

Additionally, he said that the BCCI hopes to host the Women's Premier League's second season before March of the following year.

“We will explore options with the broadcaster before settling on a timeframe. Before March 2024, we would consider a timeframe for scheduling the next Women's Premier League, Shah stated.
