Sri Lankan coach Mickey Arthur currently uses the break to recalibrate plans for the team once cricket resumes.
Cricket is temporarily on a break due to the outbreak of COVID-19 across the world. In relation to that, players and coaches both try to keep themselves busy and in condition for the time that the sport will resume once more. Among those who keep themselves busy is Sri Lankan coach Mickey Arthur who has coached the team since December 2019.
‘This isolation period is giving us as coaching staff a time to reflect as well on the player plans, roles and goals that we have set for ourselves as a group’, Arthur said. ‘We are also looking at trends from around the world and analyzing all the opposition that we are going to play against over the next year. We as a group want to stay ahead of the pack and be the leaders not the followers in terms of coaching trends around the world’.
Arthur also shared that the players are doing their parts as each has its own fitness regimes which are being observed at home. Everyone, including the trainers, are all doing their parts to ensure that everyone will still be in great condition once all cricket matches resume.
Arthur currently works as the team’s coach across all cricket formats. To know more about the formats of cricket, check out Betwala.
