Former Team India coaching staff member returns!

Team India have brought back Paddy Upton as the mental conditioning coach before the T20 World Cup in Australia. Rahul Dravid has previously worked with him and is determined to keep his players in the best mental shape before the start of the tournament. 

Team India have roped in Paddy Upton as their mental conditioning coach just before the T20 Cricket World cup in Australia later this year. Paddy Upton had a stint with Team India before, from 2008-2011.

Paddy Upton was Gary Kirsten's assistant when India lifted the coveted Cricket World Cup Trophy in 2011 under the leadership of MS Dhoni. He also has the experience of working with India's head coach Rahul Dravid at the Rajasthan and Delhi franchises in the IPL.

Upton, in fact, stated he's privileged to be back in Indian colours and how's he looking forward to working alongside long-time colleague and friend Rahul Dravid.

((PUT UPTON BITE))

Indian captain Rohit Sharma has welcomed the decision to have Upton on board with coach Dravid's main focus on keeping his players in the best mental shape before and during the T20 World Cup.

India had a terrible run in the last edition of the tournament and failed to qualify for the semi-finals in the UAE. They'll be hoping for a much-improved show this time around.
