Bio-bubbles are mentally draining: Shastri

CHENNAI: Indian cricketers must get a two-week break after this year’s IPL to recover from fatigue since staying in bio-bubbles is “mentally draining”, head coach Ravi Shastri said on Friday.
The Indian players have not taken a break since the IPL 2020 in September in the UAE. The IPL was followed by a challenging Australia tour comprising four Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is.
With the final spot in the World Test Championships at stake, India is currently hosting England in a bilateral series consisting of four Tests, five T20Is and three ODIs.
“I do believe you need a break from international cricket at some point. After the England series, yes they go into the IPL. Again after the IPL, a couple of weeks off is a must,” Ravi Shastri told Star Sports.
“Because in these quarantines, in these bubbles, it is mentally draining. You are a human, at the end of it all.”
The 14th edition of the IPL will be held between April and May this year.
