Mumbai: Pacer Shardul Thakur on Saturday resumed outdoor training after a two-month coronavirus-forced break. The cricketer was seen hitting a local ground at Boisar in Maharashtra’s Palghar district along with some domestic players.
The Maharashtra government has allowed opening of stadiums for individual training in green and orange zones without spectators.
This was after the home ministry offered relaxation in restrictions for the fourth phase of the lockdown till May 31.
Strict safety protocols were followed, with each bowler getting his own set of disinfected balls.
Mumbai batsman Hardik Tamore, who made his Ranji debut for the domestic giants last season, was also seen training at the same ground.
Top cricketers like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, who have resorted to home workouts to keep themselves fit during the lockdown, are still waiting to resume individual training.
