The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has made eye tests mandatory for its gamers. “Eye tests would be made mandatory for all the Bengal players,” a CAB launch said.
This follows a gathering between Bengal teaching workers and CAB office-bearers on Monday. It is learnt that Bengal head coach Arun Lal proposed eye tests for the gamers which was unanimously accepted. Lal felt that batsmen could be benefited from it, particularly towards the brand new ball.
The CAB will seek the advice of eye specialist and the state affiliation’s medical committee member Nandini Roy to take the matter ahead. Tests could be completed throughout pre-season camps.
“Eyesight is a very important aspect which plays a big role as far as reflexes are concerned. Therefore, we don’t want to take any chances,” CAB president Avishek Dalmiya stated. CAB, in the meantime, hasn’t finalised any date for resumption of coaching.
