BCCI’s key operating environment regarding the Indian’s team
It is interesting to deal with players who may be non-compliant or non-motivated regarding the prevention of injuries and performance enhancements.
BCCI has dealt in the past with a lot of players in the Indian team who were not serious about their rehabilitation. They literally made NCA their second home.
Most of the current NCA staff of the Indian team are in expectation of reinstating into the system.
The BCCI stated that it is committed to providing an environment with high performance for its athletes. The S&C coach of the Indian team as a part of a developing Sports Science & Sports Medicine (SSSM) will play a key role in contributing and providing support to the players.
