“Indian Players Can Skip IPL Matches,” Rohit Sharma Reacts To ‘Workload Management’ Query
The defeat in the recently concluded 3-match ODI series against Australia has certainly increased worries of the Indian team management as Rohit Sharma-led team is slated to play the final of the World Test Championship 2021-23 and the ODI World Cup this year. This is the first series which India has lost at home in the last four years and Rohit Sharma had to deal with some tough questions in the press conference which he attended after the 3rd ODI that India lost to Australia by 21 runs.
Rohit Sharma supported the Indian cricketer Suryakumar Yadav despite his dismal performance in the series. SKY has become the first Indian cricketer to get dismissed three times consecutively on golden duck and he was brutally trolled by the Indian Twitter users for his poor performance.
One journalist also asked a question regarding the workload management of the Indian players as the IPL 2023 will be starting soon and it will be important to keep the Indian players injury free in this 2-month long tournament because the big event ICC ODI World Cup is scheduled later this year in India.
Rohit Sharma states that the team management has asked the players to be careful and take care of their bodies as they all are adults but now it all depends on the franchises as they own the players. The Indian skipper who will also lead Mumbai Indians in the league says that if a player feels overburdened, then he should take rest by not playing one or two games but he feels that it won’t happen.
The Indian team will again face the Australian team in the WTC final which will be played on 7 June 2023 at The Oval, London.
