New Delhi: The Indian team recorded a historic victory on the Australian tour and stole the record for victories around the world. Defeating Australia on home soil with an “injured” team is a huge victory for Team India. However, a big question arises as to whether the injury inflicted on so many players was a coincidence or the poor physical shape of the team.
With this in mind, BCCI has taken a big step forward towards the fitness of players. BCCI says it will not compromise the fitness of players.
