Australia's top cricketers began practice at Sydney Olympic Park on Monday, where Steve Smith, David Warner and Mitchell Starc, along with other players, also sweated. 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 bat for two months, due to which he is at the best level of fitness compared to the last few years.
There is not much impact of the Kovid-19 epidemic in Australia, so far there have been only about 7000 cases. Smith told the Sydney Morning Herald, “I am at the best level of fitness compared to years past. I have done a lot of running and sweating in the home gym. I have worked hard in the last two months. '
Cricket Australia announced the international season last week, which will begin on 9 August (Cricket Will Start in Australia). Smith loves batting during practice as much as during matches. However, he has not touched his bat in the last two months.
Smith said he focused on physical and mental fitness during the time he got during the Kovid-19 epidemic. He said, 'I have not really touched the bat. I was just focusing on getting myself fit, strong and mentally refreshed. '
England's cricketers have also started training in a bio-safe environment and Sri Lankan players also started practicing on Monday. Smith said that this break was welcome for him after the busy 2019 season.
He said, 'I've taken some master classes at home (online with fans) … but other than that I haven't really picked up a cricket bat.'
