Default Solution for preventing injuries, fatigues, and providing Quality Cricket.

Now a days some players complains of over work or fatigue and lots of players get tired. Should the number of games to be stopped ? I dont think so. I am always against the idea of playing same 11 players throughout the year. This will leads to decrease in bench strength, less exposure to the bench players, if 3 or 4 players get injured will lead to players with less exposure or quality. Also, if the same players are played throughout the year it will lead to more frustration among the players and fatigue and tiredness. Now a days with 20/20, lots of ODIs, and lots of tests, lots of media and lots of money stopping the number of games played is foolish thing to do.

This the plan I would suggest. First give contract to 25 players to play ODI, 20/20, and test. This should include 8 fast bowlers, 4 spinners, 2 wicketkeepers, and 11 batsman. These players should be rotated in the ODIs, 20/20 and test matches. Suppose if a country plays 35 ODI and 18 test a year, a player should play 28 ODI and 14 tests and the players should be rotated. The bench players should given good opportunities and they should have as many quality and experience as the front players. The main idea is nobody's place should be free. They have to perform and should be healthy competition.

I picked 8 fast bowlers because the fast bowlers should be given 4-6 months break in a year. They should be rotated well. We see lots of fast bowlers getting injuried. They should be given time for rehabitation. If the fast bowlers are rotated well, then the injuries will decrease.

No point decrease the matches, increase the players and bring more and more good players.

Say if there is no rotation and the same 15 are played for 4 to 5 years, lots of good emerging players and lots of talent who may be become superstars in the future will have to wait until the current players get injured or get retired.

Looking for ur suggestions and opinions.

The complaint comes from the elite teams only; namely Aus and England. Money talk. Double their salary, no one will utter a word. Money is everything in any sports.

15 test matches = 75 days max. (Then again some play 12 = 60 days)
25 ODIs = 25 days
20 20/20 = 10 days.
Total = 95 to 110 days. With rain and test matches ending in 3 or 4 days we can round it up to 100 days.

(MLB) Baseball: there are total of 162 games in a season. This is without even considering the playoffs. 5 games in the 1st round, 7 in next and then 7 in the world series. a world series team might play 171 - 179 games. Since they are compensated properly noone complains.

(Golf): On average in the European tour or in the PGA tour players, plays in over 30 tournaments in a year (men or women). If he/she makes 80% of the cut he/she plays 24 tournaments four days = 96 days. The rest 6 tournaments he/she plays 12 days. Totals to 108.

I still can't figure out why people are complaining of fatigue.

What is the duration of a baseball match? In test cricket a day is at least 6 hours long (7 hours for ODI)

A baseball can last any where from 2 to 5/6 hours. 3 hours average may be, just a guess.

A golf round can last 3 to 4 hours. But mentally much more tougher than cricket and more concentration is needed.

2-3 hrs is the norm for a Baseball game but it is as grueling as cricket considering all the travaling they have to do touring from city to city every week playing 6 games a week with 1 travel day it's hard work but i'd do it when minimum wage is $500,000.

Increase the pool of players. Play 18 to 20 players for a series especially if its 5 test series. I dont like the idea of sticking with the same combination and playing 80% and 90% fit players or lead the players to fatigue.
Look like Tom Moddy has the same ideas. Watch this out...

As Ehsan Mani said, teams that are complaining about the hectic schedule are the same teams that are arranging too many matches outside the FTP (sometimes in cost of us and Zimbabwe).

Miandad dismisses player burnout concerns
http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/ci/c...ry/245253.html

Javed Miandad, former Pakistan captain and batting legend, has added his voice to the brewing debate about player workloads, dismissing concerns of player burnout due to an increasingly busy international schedule.
"All these complaints about too much cricket nowadays is rubbish. In our days we yearned for more matches," Miandad told Reuters.
He added, "Look at the other sports globally and how much football, tennis and golf is played on the international circuit. Cricket still lacks in global appeal because it is restricted to few countries." ....
Miandad's comments come during a period in which debate over the issue has intensified. Sunil Gavaskar first criticised modern-day players for complaining about being overburdened, claiming he was willing to sweat it out 365 days a year for India.

Play less irrelevant junk ODIs.

And, yes, that includes corruption-inducing crap like the Champions Trophy.
