The burden of work being done by Indian players in the Indian Premier League, just before the World Cup, remains a matter of discussion, but Indian captain Virat Kohli has left the decision to his colleagues in the T20 tournament. How many matches to play and how many do not.
The IPL will begin on March 23 and immediately after its conclusion, the Indian team will be going to England where the World Cup will be played from May 30. Selection Committee chairman MSK Prasad has already said that the franchise has been spoken with the burden of the work being done on the players, but Kohli said that organizing his workload is the job of the player.
Kohli said, "We have given the responsibility of working with the player with full intelligence and informing franchise management. They will be in touch with our physio Patrick Farhat. All things will be monitored for the World Cup and it also includes the workload. '
He said, "We will tell a time where the player can rest. They will definitely take advantage of this opportunity. The World Cup comes once in four years and IPL happens every year, but this does not mean that we are not committed to playing in the tournament. We have to be clever and have to make good decisions. The responsibility will be on the player. Nobody will be forced to make any decision. '
However, Kohli also said that this session was very busy for the Indian team but the team is full of confidence and the players are entitled to the IPL's enjoyment. He said, "There is an effect of playing for a long time. I am not accepting this excuse because in whatever match you play as a team, you are expected to win. When there is a long session, then you think about it. It was a very busy session. '
The Indian captain said, "We are happy with the way we played cricket. We are happy with the way the players demonstrated their potential. It was good to see the confidence that we went through. In this context, we are entitled to enjoy the IPL. "
