IPL 2019: 5 Players Who Should be Rested Through the Course of the Tournnament
The 12th edition of the Indian Premier League has already passed its first week and just like the previous year, Chennai Super Kings are sitting pretty at the top of the points table with 3 victories from 3 matches. With the IPL fever in action, we might have forgotten about the impending 2019 World Cup which will be played just after the conclusion of the IPL.
It is important for Team India to manage their players well and select a perfect squad for the World Cup. They will hope that none of the premier cricketers gets injured which hampers their preparations for the World Cup.
Now let us have a look at 5 Indian players who should be rested through the course of the tournament to manage their workload
The Mumbai Indians speedster is one of the finest bowlers in world cricket and is currently the No 1 bowler in ODI cricket. He is one of the lethal weapons for Mumbai Indians but he is as important for India in the upcoming World Cup. Bumrah should be rested for some part of the tournament in order to maintain his fitness and manage his workload for the 2019 World Cup.
The Indian skipper is arguably the greatest modern day batsman. He loves playing all matches and giving his 100 per cent. However, he should look to rest himself ahead of the World Cup as an injury might prove to be a huge factor for India in the World Cup. The Indian skipper hasn’t looked in great touch in the IPL so far. Hence his own performances and the performances of RCB mighty affect him in his tenure for India during the World Cup.
The Indian fast bowler is back into rhythm and bowling his heart out. He went for a few sixes of Andre Russell against the Kolkata Knight Riders but before that, he had castled him with a sensational Yorker. He is a rhythm bowler and he needs to manage his workload as the tournament reaches the business end. He is an integral part of the Indian limited overs team and will be an X factor for them in the World Cup.
The Indian middle order batsman has been an injury prone cricketer since the beginning of his career. He has played quite a few great innings for the Indian team and his low arm action in bowling makes him a vital option for Virat Kohli. He has been an integral part of the team and since he is injury prone, the team management should look to rest him ahead of the 2019 World Cup.
The Chennai Super Kings skipper looked in great form as he smashed an unbeaten 75 of just 46 deliveries against the Rajasthan Royals. He will be the go-to man for India in the World Cup. Virat Kohli has immensely benefited from his presence in the team. At the twilight of his career, it won’t be right to play him through the course of the tournament. If CSK qualifies for the playoffs early, then Dhoni should be rested for the last few league games.
