IND vs ENG: Rahul Dravid calls for reform in India domestic schedule

India coach Rahul Dravid has called for a change in the hectic domestic schedule in the country following the series win over England. Dravid said that the schedule of the players need to be managed well. 

”I saw some of the comments by Shardul. In fact, some of the boys who’ve come into the team also commented about how tough the domestic schedule is,” Dravid admitted.

”We need to hear the players because they are going through the grind and putting their bodies on the line. We need to see how we can manage our schedules. It’s a long season already in India. It’s tough,” he said

”The Ranji Trophy is a long season, and if you add a Duleep and a Deodhar to that…if I’m not mistaken, the Duleep started in June, a month after the IPL. ”Your problem in this situation is your best players, the guys who are pushing for selection for India, are the ones that end up playing the most cricket. So, it can get quite tough on a lot of those boys.” He wants BCCI to have a re-look at the calender.

”Maybe we need to re-look and see whether some of the tournaments that we are conducting are necessary in this day and age or if they are not necessary. There needs to be an all-round review involving coaches and players,” he signed off.
