New Delhi: Former India pacer Irfan Pathan feels that quick bowlers will take at the least 4 to 6 weeks to get again into rhythm after they return to motion after the coronavirus hiatus. Most of the cricketers in India haven’t been capable of practise since March because of the countrywide lockdown.
“To be honest, I am really worried about the fast bowlers,” Pathan stated on ‘Cricket Connected’. “Going forward, they might need four to six weeks to get going themselves. It’s a tough job and if you are bowling 140-150 kmph, running about 25 yards to bowl one ball at a time and then keep bowling for a few overs. Your body gets stiff, injury management will be key as well,” he added.
