Michael Clarke, the former Australia captain, has urged the current crop of Australian players to reconsider playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in order to be able to avoid injuries.
During the last edition of the IPL, a number of Australian players including Steve Smith suffered injuries and were forced to leave the tournament. Soon after, Australia lost to Sri Lanka in the three-Test series and Smith took a break from international cricket to get away from the non-stop cricket. Mitchell Starc missed the five-match One-Day International series in South Africa due to injury while Josh Hazlewood was rested for the contest where the hosts blanked Australia 5-0.
The decision to rest key players meant Australia traveled to South Africa without their frontline bowlers. Clarke felt that playing for the country should be the priority for any player. “Cricket Australia allow every contracted player to have six weeks off a year,” Clarke said on Saturday (December 3). “This falls during the IPL time so it’s an individual player’s choice to go and play IPL. And if you choose your six-week holiday to play IPL, then that’s your choice.
“There’s positives, the cash, that comes with that, but there’s negatives, the fatigue and lack of rest. You’ve got to sum up what’s best for you.
NEW DELHI: The BCCI-Lodha Panel stand-off over the implementation of the Supreme Court appointed committee’s reforms has not only delayed the IPL media rights process but also threatens to derail the preparations for the 2017 IPL season. The harried IPL owners are, therefore, waiting with bated breath for the Apex Court’s judgement on December 5. Every year by October, the team owners and officials have at least one or two meetings and discuss matters relating to the upcoming season.

Therefore not only is the BCCI anxiously waiting for the Apex Court to pass its final order on December 5, but the IPL teams are also holding their breath. They are eager to ensure that no more delay takes place in the preparations.
