“It’s quite critical for us. We are going to keep in constant touch with all the players who are going to play that final and monitor their workload and see what’s happening with them, Around 21st May, there will be six teams who will be possibly out of IPL play-off contention and so whichever players are available, we will try and find time to get them to the UK early as possible and get some time and we will monitor as much as possible,” he stated.

With India already losing out to Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant, and Shreyas Iyer due to injury the Indian management should have a constant talk with the IPL franchise over their workload management. World Test Championship will be a big opportunity for India to end India’s drought in ICC events.
