What is Team India’s mental conditioning coach Paddy Upton doing with Rohit and his boys?

Xtra Time Web Desk: Team India’s mental conditioning coach Paddy Upton has made a special program for each and every player in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. The main focus is to keep the players morale high and mentally refreshed as they go into a major tournament like the T20 World Cup.

Paddy has discussed at length with Team Indian Head Coach Rahul Dravid before coming up with an extensive program for each cricketer in the team. He has been doing one-on-one session with the Indian cricketers since joining the squad during Asia Cup 2022 in Dubai. During the recently concluded series against Australia and South Africa, he had multiple sessions with Rishabh Pant, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik and others.  

Upton has also chalked out a program for the bowlers after discussing with bowling coach Paras Mhambrey. The basic idea is how to keep their mind focused during crucial situations and at the death overs.

Paddy Upton along with compatriot Gary Kirsten played a key role in helping MS Dhoni led Indian team to win the 2011 World Cup in India. The biggest plus is Paddy has worked with Dravid when they were at Rajasthan Royals franchise.

Paddy Upton was appointed as the mental conditioning coach of Indian team earlier in July this year. Since then, he has been working with head coach Rahul Dravid to maintain the workload management of the team.
