There are a lot of talks going around the workload management of Indian bowlers during the 12th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL). The World Cup will commence from May 30 in England and Wales. And no team would want their key players to get injured during a domestic T20 league like IPL when the World Cup is so close. Team India are no different. Not only they would want their bowlers to be fit but fresh and raring to fire with all guns blazing when the World Cup begins.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is one of India’s premier quick bowlers, opened up on workload management during the IPL. Sunrisers Hyderabad‘s key bowler, said: “That’s there in our minds. It will come into play after the first half of IPL, six-seven matches then we can know how we can approach the second half of IPL and what we need to do to remain fit for the World Cup.
“Yes, it (World Cup) is there on our minds but we’ll look after (our fitness) in the second half of IPL,” added Bhuvneshwar.
Bhuvi will also take rest if he feels like there is a need for it. “There isn’t a surety for anything. Yes, there is something which is mind, if I feel that I am tired, then we can take rest. So, of course, it’s upto the franchise. I am sure they will cooperate with each and every player because the World Cup is a very important thing for us and BCCI may also talk to them,” said the Indian pacer.
