Mumbai Indians’ physiotherapist Paul Chapman is training his boys in a very different way for the finals of the Indian Premier League 2019. Chapman is sports science manager for Australia’s domestic cricket team New South Wales. The Australian fitness trainer feels that there is no difference in the work ethics of players from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the Indian squad, they all sweat the same.
Mumbai Indians shared a video from their official Twitter handle and Paul Chapman can be seen sharing the fitness routine of the players before the upcoming IPL final. In the video, Chapman explained different routine for batsmen and bowlers before a game. Chapman insisted on running for warm ups before the game for both batsmen and bowlers so that they can have a great day on the field.
Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings at Chepauk to become the first team to reach IPL 2019 finals. Mumbai finished at top of the points table after the league stage ended with 18 points to their name. Mumbai defeated Chennai in the first qualifiers by 6 wickets and have won all three times they met CSK this season.
Indian Premier League 2019 finals will take place in Hyderabad on May 12 as it was shifted from Chennai due to a conflict over stands between Chennai corporation and Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA).
