Kohli and Bumrah to be Rested Against West Indies

Kohli and Bumrah to be rested against West Indies

Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah will be rested against West Indies for the limited overs series according to BCCI. The series will kick start in the month of August in the United States. These two key players will rejoin the team in the two-match test series which is a part of the inaugural World Test Championship.

The Story

Indian team is currently playing World Cup 2019 and will face West Indies tomorrow in the 34th match of the tournament. Meanwhile, a BCCI official told PTI that the captain Kohli and pace bowler will be rested in the upcoming limited overs series against West Indies. He informed that these two have been continuously playing for India so their rest is important. “Virat has been playing since the start of Australia series and Bumrah’s workload management is also paramount. They will join the team before the Test series,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.”

The men in blue are set to play the semi-finals and if they manage to reach the final, the key player will have to play till July 14 at a stretch. So it will be important that the main batters and fast bowlers get an adequate amount of rest. This is one of the reasons that Test series will be played after the T20I and ODIs so that the key players from both teams are features in the test matches.

Rest for others

The official explained the same and said, “With the first Test in Antigua starting August 22, there would be enough time for the key members in the World Cup squad to get much-needed rest,”

The two important members, in all likelihood, will join the team before the three-day practice game starting from August 17 for the Test match. According to the reports, the players who are continuously playing IPL and World Cup will get rest during the limited over series. With a lot of young talents coming up Indian selectors will have the flexibility to make necessary changes.
