Team India is hard at work getting ready for the Mission 2023 World Cup. Prior to this huge competition, the players’ fitness is being given additional attention.
And, only a few days ago, it was reported that, because to the World Cup, certain Team India players will not participate in the IPL this year. Rahul Dravid, Team India’s head coach, has now made a major remark on the subject. Coach Dravid has publicly discussed the players’ inability to compete in the IPL.
Head coach Rahul Dravid said on Monday that Indian cricketers who are in contention for the ODI World Cup will play in the Indian Premier League (IPL), barring injuries, and that senior players such as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma will have to manage their workload while white-ball cricket is suspended. One format will be prioritised over the other.
According to the BCCI’s new policy, the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and franchises will evaluate important players’ workload throughout this year’s IPL in preparation for the 50-over World Cup, which will be staged on home soil in October-November.
Dravid added, ”We gave several players (Rohit, Virat, and KL Rahul) rest during the T20 series as part of workload management.”
Given the quantity of cricket we play, there must be a balance between the two in terms of what is our focus in the near future.Simultaneously, it must be assured that our top players are accessible for major competitions.
Dravid stated that players on the World Cup roster will participate in the IPL to improve their T20 abilities.
He added, “If a player is injured or there are other concerns, I believe the BCCI has the authority to pull them from the event. T20 World Cup preparations will also be made.”
However, Dravid also said, if the player is fit, he will be released for the IPL because it’s a major tournament.
Given our preparations for the T20 World Cup in 2024, this is an important competition for the BCCI. I’m not even going to watch the series. Dravid, on the other hand, feels the break is vital before the two-week camp ahead of the critical Test series against Australia, which begins next month.
He remarked, “You need to play some white-ball events in a short period of time.” Four Border-Gavaskar Trophy matches are required for prospective WTC qualifying.
