Before the start of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019, there were a lot of talks regarding the workload management of the Indian players who will probably be part of that the 2019 World Cup 15-member squad. The hectic IPL schedule involves a lot of day in and day out traveling and pressurized matches which definitely boils down the cricketers’ bodies. India’s frontline leg-spinner Kuldeep Yadav also recently admitted the fact that the busy IPL 2019 scheduling is taking a toll on the body.
It becomes very hectic
The majority of the IPL 2019 night matches are getting over late in the midnight. During a recent interview, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) leg-spinner Kuldeep Yadav accepted that the scheduling has been very much hectic due to the games finishing late on consistent basis. He noted that proper recovery plays a huge role in competitions such as the IPL. He reckoned that with so much of travelling, it does take a toll on the body.
“It becomes very hectic (when matches gets over so late). You need to recover very well as in this competition, you need to play two matches in three days also at times. Then there is travel also. So it does take a toll on the body,” quoted Kuldeep Yadav.
You need to maintain yourself
Kuldeep mentioned that in order to be fit and ready for every next game, proper sleep and eating is a must. With World Cup scheduled to be held just after the IPL, he also stated that proper training too becomes an important factor. However, Kuldeep further noted that the modern day players are very much aware on how to manage their respective workloads.
“You need to maintain yourself, eat well and sleep well. With the World Cup just after the IPL, training is very important and how you are going about it. It’s a bit hectic but the players are smart and know how to manage (workload),” the KKR chinaman bowler added.
