With the 12th edition of Indian Premier League over, team India is all set for the ICC World Cup which starts from 30th May in England and Wales.
However, ahead of the world cup, BCCI has asked the Indian world cup playing squad to relax until they have to catch the flight to England which leaves on 21st May. The reason behind this is because of the hectic IPL matches which lasted one and a half month.
“The players have been told that they can take a break from training after the IPL. They can rest, have fun with their close ones and come back in a good frame of mind,” a source close to the team management revealed, reported TOI.
“The support staff of the Indian team initiated this move. There were talks of having a short camp before the team leaves. But it will be very unfair on the players to get into the grind immediately after a gruelling tournament like the IPL. So, it was decided that the players rather go on a break, ideally a short vacation, so that they feel good about themselves. We can’t risk any burnout,” the source said.
Is this the right move by BCCI?
