Why IPL franchise is upset with BCCI’s plan to manage player’s workload? Check here.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India made some notable amendments in the selection criteria for the national level, and prioritized player’s workload management during the long-awaited review meeting following India’s shocking exit from T20 WC 2022.

Apart from making Yo-Yo test and Dexa mandatory for the selection criteria, BCCI ordered National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru to work in tandem with the IPL franchises to monitor the pool of 20 players who will be in the frame for the 50-over World Cup which is less than 10 months away.

The development didn’t go down well with the IPL franchise as an Indian Express report confirmed the same.

“The BCCI cannot ask the franchises to rest a player for any IPL games. They can of course monitor the workload and ask for any data to be shared, but they cannot fix a cap and say a certain player can play only X number of matches or can bowl only X number of overs,” IE quoted a senior BCCI official.

The workload management of the Indian players became a major talking point in 2022, as none of the players took rest during month-long IPL 2022, but a couple of seniors were rested for the high-stake bilateral contests post-IPL, leading up to surprise knockouts from Asia Cup and T20 WC.
