Indian players will join their respective IPL franchises after the ODI series against Australia. With World Cup being the next international assignment, there are worries that T20 league could lead to injuries. Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has cautioned Indian players especially Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah to be extra smart while playing in the cash rich league.

“You don’t want your key players to get injured someone like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah you don’t want them to miss the World Cup because of injuries or niggles. You want them to be on their best of form and (play) best of cricket,” he said.

“Looking at his (Virat’s) form, from the last four-to-five years, he has hit that purple patch and he is definitely one of those toughest batsmen that you will come across as a bowler. Every batsman has a weak point where to bowl at and, at the moment, we don’t see that with Virat Kohli,” he added.

However, he is backing India to do well in the showpiece event in England and Wales.

“World Cup is still very far. We will have to wait and watch what happens. But this is a kind of a team which can lift any major championship. World Cup or any big tournament, – they can definitely win. They have the team (for it)”, Harbhajan was quoted as saying on Sportstar.
