Indian skipper Virat Kohli has once again stressed on the need for a strict rotation policy for the first-choice players that keeps them fresh for the more important campaigns. India’s jam-packed cricketing schedule involving two T20 and one 50-over World Cup in the next three years reinforces the importance of proper workload management from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
"It's not a conversation you can hide away from in any manner. It is around eight years now that I have been playing 300 days a year, which includes travelling and practice sessions. And intensity is right up there all the time. It does take a toll on you," Kohli stated.
The classy batter did not mince any words in mentioning the need for having periodic breaks in between to remove any issues of fatigue faced by the top players.
"It's not that the players are not thinking about it all the time. We do choose to take lot more breaks individually even though the schedule might not allow you to. Especially from guys, who play all the formats,” he added.
