To sum it up… There are many articles in the media about what happened in the Indian dressing room during that tournament. One of these stories was revealed by Paddy Upton, the former mental conditioning coach of Team India.
Upton said the team advised players to have sex before World Cup matches. He said the advice was given to relieve nervousness in the players.
