Naive to Expect “Workload Management” for India’s World Cup Assets
Consider this scenario: it’s deep into the 2019 season of the Indian Premier League and Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore are in a bit of a jam. They’re on the road for the third back-to-back away game, and they must win their next match to stand a chance of making it to the play-offs. The World Cup is around the corner and Kohli is carrying a tiny niggle. Does Kohli think about India or RCB at that point? Does he rest himself, the most important batsman in his team’s line up, someone on whom a lot of India’s World Cup chances ride? Or does he take his franchise towards a championship?
