BCCI And Players Priorities Are Mixed Up




If there is a problem in execution of a system, then it can be corrected with good planning but if there are problems in planning itself, then better don’t expect good things from execution of a system.

BCCI and players priorities are mixed up

When the team is doing badly and players are not giving their best, then the captain must do something to solve those problems. If captain who himself faltering, then its upto the respective board to make a decision that sets the team back on right path. If this routine call fails, then the direction of the team will go opposite to the expectations. Now, that’s what happening in Indian cricket. This routine functioning is slowly fading away and it is reaching to a point where board itself joining hands with players in doing things wrongly.

Four years back when IPL started, everyone thought this is a boon to the Indian team and it is still. But when too much sweat is itself poison then you can’t expect boon without few problems. IPL too is not without some problems but that can be solved through some good planning. Without IPL, Indian team won’t be strong as like now (that’s a real fact). But everyone knows what kind of problem IPL is throwing up year after year once it finishes. At the end of IPL, there are injuries happened and players are fatigued but Indians are most in that list because in each match minimum of 14 Indian players playing on the field.

With so many international fixtures these days, teams barely have more than one long break each year. India is using that one long break in IPL every year and not surprisingly players don’t prefer rest when there is money in the sum of your entire year salary is available for playing just 2 months of 3 hours cricket. According to the routine, when players are not giving their best for the team then it is for captain to solve it. Indian players are definitely not either in best physical shape or mentally relaxed. It is upto the captain of Indian team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni to find a solution for it.

Captain honours the mistake

Dhoni did vow for rotational policy” to tackle this problem. But after vowing for it what was he doing in Champions League (CLT20) barely a week after long England tour? If CSK go all the way to finals, then he won’t have more than 2 days rest before joining Indian team for the England ODI series at home. Surely, captain is leading in a way that is not making his players realize their mistakes rather making them think its right because captain is also doing the same thing. Now, this is where the role of top management like BCCI is important.

Board is sleeping

BCCI is expected to take bold decision and come up with a plan to solve this problem. But rather BCCI is in the same boat as of Indian team players, saying “players can ask for rest whenever they feel fatigued and board is ready to offer” is not a solution to this problem. Do you expect players like Raina, Kohli, Yuvraj, Ishant, Munaf and few others who still not guarantee of their places in the team to ask for rest and give others a chance? No way.

Players playing in Rest of India team in Irani trophy and in Challenger trophy are regarded as the upcoming and next in line to make into the Indian team. But look at the team selected for this year Irani trophy by BCCI and dates of the challenger trophy matches. Most of Indian talented young players are either injured or playing in CL. Mostly either Indian team captain or his deputy will lead the Rest of India team but gone are those days. Had BCCI still gave the importance to this domestic tradition, they must have selected Raina, Rayudu, Ashwin, Badrinath, Harbhajan, Manoj Tiwary, Abdulla but it’s not happened. It clearly shows how BCCI itself having his priorities mixed up.

England is No. 1 in test and Australia is No. 1 in ODI, rightly so!
