Kevin Pietersen believes forced break may have extended athletes’ careers

first_imgJOHANNESBURG: While the COVID-19 pandemic might have brought the entire sporting world to a standstill, former England batsman Kevin Pietersen believes that the “forced break” might have helped certain athletes to increase the length of their careers.Since the global outbreak of novel coronavirus in March, sporting activities across the world came to a grinding halt. It was only recently that football action started in Germany while other leagues are also in the way of resuming in the coming days. According to Pietersen, this forced break might have helped some athletes to work on their fitness, heal their niggles, take a mental break from all the pressure and once again start loving the sport to which they have dedicated their entire lives. “I wonder how many sportsmen/women have had their careers lengthened with this forced break? Little niggles healing. A mental break from pressure. Falling back in love with their sport. Would be interesting to find out?” the former Englad batsman said in a tweet. In India, the nationwide lockdown has been in place since March 25 and is currently slated to end on May 31. Earlier, India head coach Ravi Shastri had also said that the forced break for the Indian players was a “welcome rest” as they can now re-energise themselves. Talking to Michael Atherton, Nasser Hussain and Rob Key on a Sky Sports podcast in March, Shastri had said Indian players had started showing signs of mental fatigue after playing five T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests in New Zealand.
