The Indian cricket team's training drills have undergone a marked change in recent years and now there is a new fun drill introduced in order to enhance the "running speed" of the players along with a sense of being able to withstand pressure. Indian cricket team's strength and conditioning coach Nick Webb has introduced a new drill where the players not only develop speed but can also deal with the pressure that there is someone hot on his heels chasing. During the first training session of the team ahead of the three-match T20 series against the West Indies on Wednesday, the Indian players were seen running in batches with the front row having colored towels placed on the back of their shorts and the chasing pack trying to collect it. Since the time of Shankar Basu, the Indian team's training methods changed drastically and there are times fun elements were introduced in order to make mundane sessions interesting.
West Indies named Monty Desai as their batting coach ahead of the limited-overs series against India on a two-year contract. He has held coaching roles with Afghanistan, Nepal, Canada, Indian regional teams and former IPL sides Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Lions in a career of over 12 years. He was most recently the batting coach of the UAE team. West Indies' head coach Phil Simmons said: "I have worked with Monty before and he is an excellent coach. He has proven he has the ability to get players to improve on their talent and also to perform better in matches. "Let me first thank CWI for this incredible opportunity. I am very excited to join a team with such a rich history in the world cricket arena, one that I myself grew up admiring," Desai said on his appointment. West Indies's team management also includes bowling coach Roddy Estwick and fielding coach Rayon Griffith.
