The access of the app has been given to cricket players as well as to the coaching and support staff, who will guide and help the team members at this hour. 

According to Republic World report, the app includes videos of individual performances as well as others; it also has online chat rooms and training sessions as well as a questionnaire in order to keep the fitness of Indian players in check.

Regarding the launch of this app, BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal told Times of India (ToI) that it is a “step-wise process” on part of the Indian board. This app will be reviewed by BCCI Secretary Jay Shah on a regular basis.

Meanwhile, Team India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour came out in support of BCCI’s new venture saying "the app brings a rare opportunity to introspect." He will use the app and worked around any topics that will be brought up by the players. 

With this app, BCCI has come up with a four-stage programme that has been handed over to the cricketers.  Below is a brief explanation of the programme:

Stage 1: Amid the lockdown, each cricketer has been presented with a set of questionnaire to understand the facilities accessible to them. Through the app, various coaches like - batting, bowling, fielding are being conducted in their own sessions. Indian team physiotherapist Nitin Patel and trainer Nick Webb are also organising sessions through the app. 

Stage 2: Once some restrictions are lifted, depending on how much movement is allowed, players will be taken to local stadiums and their skill-wise training sessions will take place. 

Stage 3: Once when normality resumes, plans are being put into place for the safe movement of players between specific centres and states for training.

Stage 4: Once everything is normal and the action gets underway, BCCI wants each player of the team to be mentally and physically fit.
