India is in Australia getting ready for the 2022 T20 World Cup, but even before they booked their flights, they took a few hits. Before the squad was named, star all-arounder Ravindra Jadeja suffered an injury, and subsequently, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was also ruled out.

In the most recent setback, Deepak Chahar, who was anticipated to play a part in the competition, was also eliminated, and Shardul Thakur was brought in as a backup. Many supporters and former players have said that the IPL’s intense competition may have contributed to Indian players’ breakdowns when a major event neared. Bumrah has already been ruled out of the 2022 Asia Cup as well.

Danish Kaneria, a former Pakistani spinner, has added his voice to the call for the Indian government to attempt to limit the amount of IPL games Bumrah plays in and give him time off during meaningless matches in bilateral series.

Deepak Chahar is unfortunate, I’m afraid. He had strong ball and bat skills and was emerging as a contender for Australia. However, we cannot control injuries, and that is what has happened to him. He is very prone to injuries, and that has to be investigated, according to Kaneria on his Youtube channel.

Kaneria used the Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc as an example, who skipped the IPL super auction in 2022 to play as much international cricket as he could.

“Mitchell Starc avoided the IPL to be healthy and prepared for the World Cup. This is referred to as giving national obligations precedence. Jasprit Bumrah, a powerful bowler, is no longer on the squad. He was also unavailable for the Asia Cup, which had a significant impact. He is now unavailable before a significant tournament like the T20 World Cup. Cut down the number of matches that you play in the IPL and international dead rubbers. Keep him prepared for foreign occasions, Kaneria said.
