Martin Crowe, the former New Zealand cricketer has conveyed concern that the New Zealand’s tight schedule ahead of the International Cricket Council World Cup could prove to be exhausting for the squad.

Martin Crowe expressed his view in his latest column for a popular cricket website and conjectured if the Kiwis have taken too much on their tray before the quadrennial cricket championship known as International Cricket Council World Cup. He pointed this as Black Cap’s only fret in looking at their capabilities to ultimately break the country’s World Cup trophy drought.

Martin Crowe wrote in that column: “The 11th World Cup is just around the corner, yet New Zealand have a further eight games to play before they march out on February 14 to play the opening match against Sri Lanka. Normally that’s more than a whole summer’s worth. To win the World Cup, New Zealand will need to play 17 one-day matches from here, which will be exhausting. This is my only concern as I assess their chances.

On Thursday The Kiwis will face Sri Lanka in the 2nd game of their 7 match One Day International series in Hamilton. It will then play Pakistan in 2 One Day Internationals (ODIs) on the eve of the cup before the match with Sri Lanka on 14th February, 2015.

Already The New Zealand team are having some injury problems, with promising batsman Kane Williamson resting a shoulder injury and fast bowler Kyle Mills recuperating from a hamstring injury.
