Former India mental conditioning coach Paddy Upton has claimed in his book, ‘The Barefoot Coach’, that one of the biggest professional errors in his role with the Indian cricket team was ‘a joke’ asking the players to have sex.

IANS quoted Upton as saying, “I wasn’t telling the players to do anything. I was sharing information. And what was taken out of context in the media was the jokes that I told them; I wasn’t suggesting players do that.”
