india vs new zealand semi-final : Paddy Upton has a special connection with Indian cricket. The renowned mental fitness coach was a member of the support team for the Men in Blue when Mahendra Singh Dhoni made history by leading them to the 2011 World Cup title.
While his brief second spell didn’t produce the same results—India lost in the Twenty20 World Cup quarter-finals last year—Upton was able to help a lowly Virat Kohli “get perspective”.
Upton feels the outcome of the 2019 World Cup semi-finals won’t matter this time around as India prepares for another World Cup semi-final against them, this time at the Wankhede Stadium.
According to Upton, Sportstar, “I think the ghosts of 2019 worry the fans more than the players.”
The guys who played then are more experienced today, and the squad has a new coach and a number of new players. I don’t think they have to worry about anything. Another is the fact that New Zealand have nothing to lose and are coming in favorites and this gives New Zealand a bit more freedom in their game.
As the only side in the tournament to be unbeaten so far, Upton predicts Rohit Sharma’s team will use the same strategy in the knockout stage “With bat and ball, the team has real potential and they have.” the right environment to play and not try to do anything creative.” or intelligence, Upton said.They also have to keep to basics, which specifically means they had to be well-prepared.
For the past 10 years, the Indian team has failed to win an ICC trophy despite consistently dominating the two-nation series and the Asia Cup, but Upton feels it.
Successful teams approach success and disappointment in comparable ways. “They go through everything in depth, take the lessons, put the past behind them, and apply those lessons to the next game,” he said.
“I’m sure Rahul and Rohit, whom I know well, would be fully prepared for any opponent, any situation and any situation. Good preparation and knowledge creates a terrific confidence curve, according to Upton, who has played with Dravid in the IPL.” teams, Delhi Daredevils, Rajasthan.Worked in Royals games and Indians.
When trust is expressed peacefully, it often results. This team plays with confidence and poise, and is well prepared and skilled. Considering the cricketing skills and leadership skills of the captain and coach, this shocks me.
In a recent interview to the host broadcaster, Kohli said that he was able to get into a strong state of mind as he and Upton often talked Upton also said that Kohli was still the one who talked regularly, although they wanted to give the details of their conversation the specific keeps of. “I have spoken to Virat further and we are still in touch. However, the content of our conversation is confidential.”
