10th August 2021 Bengal U23 probables are undergoing physical conditioning sessions at the Fort Williams
Coach Laxmi Ratan Shukla is leaving no stones unturned to ensure that the probables attain maximum mental and physical toughness ahead of the squad selection process.
"I have always believed that skills and fine-tuning can always be worked on. But mental toughness and physical conditioning have to be enhanced. It is the mental toughness that gets a batsman to grind out a difficult session or a bowler who his has gone wicketless after toiling for an entire session finds the physical endurance to bowl a few more overs.
And who best to inculcate that in the players than the army. So we requested the personnel here and they readily agreed to help the boys. Now the probables are undergoing physical conditioning at Fort Williams from the army trainers to build on their endurance," said L R Shukla.
The boys will undergo a ten day session in two batches and this regimen will hopefully make the players tougher.
