“If You Think There Is Burnout Then Don’t Play IPL.”- Kapil Dev

"If You Think There Is Burnout Then Don't Play IPL."- Kapil Dev

According to former India captain Kapil Dev, the regular players of Team India can skip the Indian Premier League if the international schedule seems hectic. He also explained that there should be an emotional connect when one is representing the nation.

Skipping IPL Might Help, Says Kapil

At the number of occasions, Indian cricketers had mentioned about their hectic international calendar which affects fitness and performance as well. Speaking about the same Kapil Dev said, “If you think there is burnout then don’t play IPL.” To him, the level of commitment should be much higher while someone is playing for the country. In franchise cricket, there is no need to invest a lot of energy that can make one exhausted.

During the fifth edition of HCL Grant’s felicitation ceremony, India’s first World Cup-winning captain also explained that the case of representing one’s country should be different. “There you are not representing your country. So if you think you are burned out, you can always take a break during the IPL. When you are representing your country, the feeling should be different.”

Kapil On His Own Career

The man himself was asked whether he had ever felt burned out during his career. Kapil agreed to the same and also explained how not getting the desired result also makes one burned out.

“So many times, yes. When you come into a series and you keep on playing, you burn out when you are not getting runs or wickets. But when you do, you never burn out. You take seven wickets and bowl 20-30 overs a day, you don’t feel tired. You bowl 10 overs and give away 80 runs and don’t pick a wicket you feel more tired.”

He further added it’s all about satisfactory performances. “It’s a very emotional thing. Your mind, your brain works like that. Performances make you very light and happy.”
