India vs. New Zealand: Ahead of the upcoming New Zealand T20I series, Rohit Sharma stressed the need of workload management and “taking time off” for cricketers.

Rohit Sharma, India’s T20 captain, stated on Tuesday that his players were “not machines” and needed to recuperate ahead of a home match against New Zealand just days after the World Cup.

The matches take place in three Indian cities and conclude barely four days before the Tests in Kanpur (November 25-29) and Mumbai (November 30-31). (Dec 3-7).

“We place a high value on workload management. Players aren’t robots. It is vital to take time off “With India’s new coach Rahul Dravid by his side, Sharma had a virtual press conference.

“Some athletes, especially those who have been playing for a long time, require relaxation in order to stay fresh. We want all of our boys to be mentally prepared for the upcoming trials “Added he.

India vs. New Zealand: Virat Kohli, India’s Test captain, has withdrawn from the T20 series and will also miss the first Test.

Kane Williamson, the New Zealand captain, is also unavailable for the short-format matches, but will play in Kanpur.

Dravid, a former batting champion, believes cricketers should follow footballers’ lead in terms of workload management.

“Even in football, the top names don’t appear in every game. The mental and physical health of a player is crucial “he stated

Tim Southee, a Kiwi paceman, stated earlier in the day that the team’s tight schedule and long stints in Covid bubbles were dragging on him.

“It’s obviously a really demanding schedule… even before the T20 World Cup, we had a series in Bangladesh and Pakistan,” said Southee, who will captain his team in the absence of Williamson.

Since Sunday’s finals loss in Dubai, the Kiwis “haven’t really had a chance to pause and ponder,” he continued.
