In the Video S.Basu who is the strength and conditioning coach of the team shared his view about the traditional match and why is he against cricketers playing football.
“I hate football for cricketers. It’s highly injurious. I can only see risk, no reward. But even in the Indian team, we cut football totally but once in a while, I allowed the children to play. Every year, when they play this game, my heart is in my mouth,” Basu said
RCB have been training in Dubai after completing their mandatory quarantine period. Virat Kohli’s men will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening game on September 21.
