The situation may not seem to be getting normal, but the Games are expected to return. Especially the cricketers are now returning to the field. After the Sri Lankan team started training on Monday, the top cricketers of the Australian team have also started practicing from Monday itself. Kangaroo players went to practice at Sydney Olympic Park.
Along with all the players, Steve Smith, David Warner and Mitchell Starc also practiced hard. On this occasion, the team’s chief batsman Steve Smith said that he has taken care of physical and mental fitness while staying away from the game for two months, due to which he is at the best level of fitness as compared to previous years. There is not much impact of the COVID-19 epidemic in Australia, so far there have been only about 7000 cases.
Smith said, “I am at the best level of fitness compared to past years. I have run a lot and sweated in a home gym. I have worked hard in the last two months.” Cricket Australia announced the international season last week, which is scheduled to begin on August 9. Smith loves batting during practice as much as during matches. However, he has not touched his bat in the last two months.
He said, “I have not really touched the bat. I was just focusing on getting myself fit, strong and mentally refreshed. This break was welcome for me after a busy 2019 season. If the T20 World Cup is not held, then I am fully ready to play in the IPL.” England cricketers have also started training in a bio-safe environment.
