IPL 2023: World Test Championships Final: Learning a harsh lesson from Jasprit Bumrah injury, BCCI is all set to issue special instructions to IPL franchises on the workload management plan of India Cricket Team players. While the BCCI made it clear that NCA will work closely with the IPL franchises on workload with World Cup 2023 in mind, a special set of instructions will go for WTC Final if India qualify. Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Shami and Mohammed Siraj will get special attention while playing in Indian Premier League. Follow IPL 2023 LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

“All players in World Cup plan will be monitored by the NCA throughout IPL. It will be a busy time. But before that we have to consider WTC Final. As there is no Bumrah in WTC, the pace department will get special attention. Considering Jadeja’s impact as an all-rounder, he is crucial to our plans and NCA will be in touch with CSK to keep a tab on his workload management. Same goes for Siraj, Shami and Shardul,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.

India are just a win away from confirming WTC Final spot. While that may be delayed if India fail to win the 3rd Test in Indore, Rohit Sharma & Co can get there in Ahmedabad. However, with not a lot of time to prepare for the WTC Final, BCCI isn’t risking any injuries.

But there will be no blanket workload management. Instead, players will be dealt in a case-to-case basis. The likes of injury-prone players like Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav and Mohammad Shami will be monitored with NCA keeping a tab on their workload (Number of overs bowled, number of minutes on the crease etc.).

“The idea is to keep players as fresh as possible. With high-intensity matches like IPL, it is difficult. But we have to do as much as possible to keep them ready,” the official added.

BCCI had originally laid out workload management plans for the 20-member shortlist for World Cup 2023. However, for players like Virat Kohli who already follow strict fitness plans, it won’t be necessary to put them under a workload management plan. But for pacers, it is necessary to avoid any long-term injury like Bumrah.

Special preparatory camp for WTC Final: India Cricket Team will have a short preparatory camp in England if Rohit Sharma & Co make it. Following IPL 2023 Final on May 28, the WTC-bound team will leave for UK on June 1 and will have a 5-day camp under Rahul Dravid. However, the venue is still not confirmed. Cheteshwar Pujara who won’t be playing in IPL is likely to play in County Cricket before the WTC Final.

“Yes, we are discussing with the ECB for a venue for a short camp. We may have a camp somewhere in London before moving to Oval as per official ICC guidelines. But it’s not yet finalised. We should have confirmation in the next two weeks,” the official told InsideSport.
