Stuart Broad has appealed to the England team's sports psychologists to help mentally mold the players in a manner that allows them to perform well in the empty fields when international cricket is restored amidst the Corona virus epidemic.
International cricket will resume after the Corona lockdown through a three-Test series starting on July 8 between England and the West Indies. These matches will be played in a biologically safe environment and there will be no on-field spectators.
Broad said in a video conference, “These matches will be different because there will be no audience.” International cricket will be a tough mentally and every player has to be fully prepared for it.
He said, 'I have spoken to my sports psychologists to help them mentally mold in such a way that we can perform well in a new environment as well.'
Broad said, “If you put an Ashes match in front of me and a friendly match before the season, then I know what my performance will be better. I have to decide whether to control emotion in international cricket matches and we have been working on it since the beginning of this month. '
Ben Stokes will captain England for the first time in the first Test and Broad believes he will have no problem with it. Broad said that Stokes had a strong mind for cricket, which would help him take over Joe Root as captain. Root will not be able to play the first test due to the birth of his second child.
