Chris Gayle played vs BD, went to BBL, then to SA T20, to Zim, and now he's playing in the IPL scoring double tons.
We're always asking for more and more games. Forget about cricket skills, metal skills, are our players fit enough to handle 10 extra games per season? BCB is having tough time as it is putting together a squad for past 2 series.
Exactly. Using BPL as an excuse for our players is just a lame excuse. These players should be blamed for having such poor fitness and of course BCB as well for not monotoring or having plans for the players. In leagues such as MLB or NBA, they play a lot more but dont see them dropping like flies like our guys do.
Aren't we hoping that we get more tours and matches in the future like the big teams? Then our players will need to make sure they train properly and be more fit.
