IPL 2023: BCCI requests that bowlers increase their workload before the WTC Final

IPL 2023: BCCI requests that bowlers increase their workload before the WTC Final

With the forthcoming World Test Championships final in mind, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has encouraged its bowlers to increase their workload in the present Indian Premier League 2023. Contradictory instructions have now been given for the bowlers, while the batters had previously been told to watch their workload in order to avoid becoming stressed out before the crucial 2018 ODI World Cup.

They may also be observed practicing with the red ball in the IPL nets, which is anticipated to increase in frequency as the current IPL’s later stages approach. The bowlers have been given precise goals to achieve, according to sources from Cricbuzz, and are expected to report to the board after they have done so.

According to reports, this was done to increase the bowlers’ workload. As a result, they have been told to bowl at least 200 deliveries per week before going to the top authority. This has been done to make up for the missed sessions that would occur from the IPL’s exorbitant travel requirements. Due to the teams’ frequent travel and accommodations in various locations, the bowlers may miss important practice periods, which could diminish their workload.

Bharat Arun, a former bowling coach for India, commented on the situation and said that the bowlers should have enough practice time before the WTC Final. Despite being primarily directed at pacers, this new directive does not fully exclude spinners from its scope.

Before the 200 or 175-ball WTC final, “it is crucial that the bowlers have enough workload under their belts…they must arrive to the WTC properly prepared,” stated Arun.

Rohit Sharma says the individual IPL teams are responsible for player management because “franchises own them now.”
The franchises would be in charge of managing and caring for their individual Indian bowlers, according to Team India captain Rohit Sharma. He stated that although each franchise had received instructions, the players actually belonged to them. As a result, he claimed, it was up to the franchises to decide how to use their athletes.

“Franchises presently hold them. Teams have received certain cues from us or potentially dangerous information. Yet, in the end, it’s up to the teams and, more importantly, the players. They need to look after their own bodies. All of them are adults. Hence, people must take care of their bodies, “Rohit stated.

Frontline pacer Mohammad Shami of Team India also commented on this directive, stating that it wasn’t always possible for a player to consider long-term because one never knew what would occur the following day. He added that bowlers should be aware of their bodies as professional cricketers and manage their workload properly.
