Indian players will be the busiest cricketers in 2011 and will face the grave risk of a serious burnout.
Maybe the time has come for the BCCI to approve the rotation policy to ensure success rate is not dropped with increasing work rate.
The IPL Governing Council on Wednesday announced the dates for the fourth edition of the richest and the most controversial cricket league, the IPL-4.
The tournament will start on April 8th, only six days after the event gets over. And the format just makes it all the more taxing. In just 54 days, players will be involved in 14 games, assuming the BCCI manages to get the 8th team in place.
The IPL-4 has added to an already packed schedule next year, which is sure to exhaust players. With cricketing action taking place throughout the year, players will surely feel the heat.
Non-stop cricket in 2011 may be great news for cricket lovers, but is anyone thinking about players? Are they machines? The schedule is feared to impact upon two very big and prestigious tours India will be making at the end of the IPL-4.
The Indian cricketers will be playing for nearly 200 days in 2011. This is absolutely staggering and something never seen before in the game for Indian players.
