IND vs IRE 1st T20: Why the BCCI selectors decide to give a break for players before Ireland tour?

  • The players were playing nonstop cricket for close three months. After IPL, the Rishabh Pant-led also played South Africa in five-match T20 series
  • The BCCI wanted to keep players fresh for the Ireland tour and hence gave the players a much-needed break
  • While few players like Pandya, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took a break, the rest left for Ireland earlier this week
  • VVS Laxman will oversee coach duties as Rahul Dravid has left England for India’s all-format tour
