‘Ready to Introduce ROTATION Policy’ says BCCI official

‘Ready to Introduce ROTATION Policy’ says BCCI official

After many complaints from players, including skipper Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah on bio-bubble fatigue, the (BCCI) is all set to finally pay notice. Despite opposition, the BCCI will implement a rotational policy like the (ECB) England & Wales Cricket Board, beginning against New Zealand with a home series.

With back-to-back series planned for 2022 and 2023, including the T20 and 50-over World Cup, the BCCI seriously takes the bio-bubble fatigue. With a critical South Africa tour coming up, many senior players were resting, and Shreyas Iyer, who was only considering white-ball cricket, was called up for the Test squad. A tour will be sent on South Africa, including Krishnappa Gowtham, Devdutt Padikkal, Priyank Panchal, among many domestic stars. But it’s all part of the plan.

The official added.

“Shreyas Iyer’s selection is entirely to ready backup for future. Pujara and Rahane are getting any older and we must take into account the exhaust of players. Now, the spin bowler too have been playing constantly and they also need rest sooner than later. Jayant Yadav could come in as a backup option for future series,”

What will be the changes in Rahul Dravid’s tenure?

BCCI will introduce a rotation policy barring virtual tours.

Rahul Dravid talked about players’ fatigue during his presentation and took the matter seriously.

A larger pool of T20 players will be preparing, and senior players will often be resting from the home series.

But unlike ECB, the BCCI will not force the players to rest. Instead, the players will be asking if they want to.

BCCI takes into account Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara’s recent struggles and wants to have backups ready.

The official added.

“We have been discussing the rotation policy for some time now. Rahul had his ideas too. But it will not apply to important tours like England, Australia or South Africa. These are important series and we will need the full squad available. So, it’s important to rotate them if the players feel the need to in home series and other series against smaller nations,”
