Our cricketers have a lot of patience: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly believes Indian players have more patience than foreign cricketers in dealing with mental health issues. Dada said this was evidenced by the fact that Indian cricketers have been in the bio-bubble for seven to eight months and are giving their best performances.
‘Indian players have more endurance compared to foreign cricketers in dealing with mental health. I also played with England, Australia, and West Indies players. If there is any problem mentally they would back off. They stayed in bio-bubble for six months and played Cricket continuously. Cricket and being in a bio-bubble is not so easy. Going from the hotel room to the ground and handle the pressure, return to the hotel room, and going again into the cricket ground. It’s really a new life. If the India team is playing like this Australian team has postponed the South Africa tour due to not being in the bio-Bubbles. Should the Aussies go to South Africa as soon as the India series is over? Their players did not agree to go there. This is the difference between ‘us and them’. The corona will not stop now. Therefore all players should be mentally prepared for this situation. If we stay positive and do our job, everything will be fine, ”said former India captain Ganguly.
