Indian cricket team’s strength and conditioning coach Nick Webb will step down from his post after the upcoming T20 World Cup. Nick Webb doesn’t want to be away from home for 6 to 8 months a year. Nick Webb was associated with Team India after Shankar Basu’s tenure ended after the ODI World Cup 2019. But now they have decided to part ways. After the Kovid period, it has become very difficult for him to stay away from his family. Nick Webb announced his resignation after two years by posting on his Instagram.
He wrote, ‘I have recently informed the BCCI that I will not seek extension of my contract after the T20 World Cup.’ Webb said that he has decided to put his family first due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions in New Zealand. It is not an easy decision, but in the end I felt that I should put my family first. Currently, anyone entering New Zealand is required to remain in institutional quarantine for 14 days.
He further said that I have no idea what the future holds for me. One thing I do know is that I will do my best to guide the Indian cricket team in the T20 World Cup. He talked about the achievements of the Indian team and how it was a privilege to be in that dressing room. For the last two years I have had the honor of representing the BCCI and Team India. We have achieved a lot as a team during this period. As a team, we have made history, we have won and lost matches, but we have accepted challenges consistently. Such things in the competition are what make this team special.
