Paddy Upton, the former mental conditioning coach of the Indian cricket team, appealed to the players to protect themselves from mental illnesses due to long-term living in a bio-safe environment (B-bubble) by detailed study from the world’s cricket associations including the BCCI (Indian Cricket Board). International players have been living in a bio-safe environment ever since the sports competitions started despite the Kovid-19 epidemic and many cricketers, footballers and tennis players have spoken out about mental health. Upton said the top sports unions are not doing enough to tackle the issue.

He said that it is a common challenge for all the players and since we have not done enough research to get feedback from different players, all the people in the medical field are saying that until we do the test, we will give such medicine Can we approve if we have done research? Upton said that many bio-bubbles have been created in the world but I have not seen anything on a large scale in which ICC (International Cricket Council), people associated with badminton or football, or BCCI officials have asked the players to understand the implications. Asked for feedback and did extensive studies.

He said that we have not yet seen its ill effects but there is a possibility that we will face more mental problems and diseases due to continuous living in bio-safe environment. Upton said that diagnosis of some of these problems is possible but no efforts are being made in this direction yet. He said that some of these defenses are possible but we are not doing anything to protect them, so we will have to wait till such problems arise and it will be unfortunate for the players.
