“When I played international cricket, I realised how much weight and everything else came into your life.” Life had certainly changed for us, but as a person, you could deal with everything. Then I realised that mental health is still very critical for me, and my family played a huge role in ensuring that I was in the right place,” he said. “You being unfit and you being fit are two different people when it comes to your attitude as well,” Krunal continued.
“When we work hard, we work hard for that inner pleasure, for that inner peace that helps us to sleep for eight hours.” You’ll be able to laugh for 4-5 hours.”
Lynn, the opening batsman, also stressed the importance of getting enough sleep in order to stay well.
“I’ve had my losses,” Lynn said, “and I believe in getting the dedication and attitude to only get better as an athlete and citizen off the field as well.”
