Babar Azam backs Ravi Shastri, says bio-bubble life impacts performance

Ravi Shastri recently spoke about the impacts of bio-bubble life and how it drained out the Indian players before the ICC T20 World Cup. Now, Pakistan captain Babar Azam has spoken about the challenges of living in restrictions.

While explaining India’s early exit from the tournament, Shastri pointed out that players were in bio-bubbles for the past six months.

Babar explained how Pakistan players are coping up with the situation.

“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 said.

Babar further added that a player needs space to get recharged after a poor 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,” he said.
