Rohit Sharma, the captain, said on Monday that Indian Test players who are not participating in the IPL 2023 playoffs may travel to the UK earlier than the others to start getting ready for the World Test Championship Final. (March 13). With the upcoming IPL season running until May 28, India, who will face Australia in the summit match at The Oval from June 7, faces a difficult scheduling conflict.
IPL 2023’s league stage will end on May 21, 16 days before the start of the championship match, and players from eliminated franchises may be sent over immediately after as a way to help them become more familiar with the playing environment.
“I don’t think it will be a huge problem but yeah, look I believe in preparation and preparations will be key for us come the finals. Around 21st May, there will be six teams who will possibly be out of IPL playoffs contention and so whichever players are available, we will try and find time to get them to the UK early as possible and get some time and we will monitor as much as possible,” Rohit said.
