The skipper of the Pakistan National Cricket Team, Babar Azam, has backed the statement of outgoing India head coach Ravi Shastri by saying that the players get uncomfortable staying in the bio-bubbles for an extended period.

Ravi Shastri, ahead of his last match as a head coach of the Indian team said that the Indian players have been mentally and physically exhausted after staying in bio-bubbles for a long period and they would have liked to have a longer break between Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 and ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021.

Speaking in a press conference, Babar said that they have tried to support each other so that players do not get uncomfortable staying in bio-bubble.

Look they are always ups and downs in professional cricket but yes players do get disturbed and uncomfortable by remaining constantly in a bio-secure bubble environment. We have tried to counter that by working as a group and trying to support each other in the Pakistan team,” Babar Azam said.

Pakistan skipper believes that once negative thoughts enter the mind of the players, it affects the performance.

As a player, you need to relax and be ready to absorb the pressure. But at times when things are not going well, you need space and you need to refresh, go out on an outing and if you can’t get out of the bubble negative thoughts do enter your mind and affect your performances.

We all try to talk to each other all the time in groups and help out each other by lifting each other and it allows us to relax and encourage as well,” he added.
