“It’s still nearly 3 weeks far away, so and also imparts our players extra time to develop correctly & to minimise the opportunity of wounds.
I’d like to appreciate the Govt & our own medical tandem once again for everything they’ve finished to make a back to training & playing possible & I’d also like to add special gratitude to the incredible sponsors engaged in this event for their own continued dedication towards the match & its beneficiary, the Hardship Fund,” he added further.
