Skip IPL, Kapil Dev’s suggestion to Indian cricketers

Former India captain Kapil dev believes if a player is feeling burned out, he can give a miss to the Indian Premier League. “If you think there is burnout then don’t play IPL.” According to the legend of Indian cricket, it is not must to give hundred percent in the franchise cricket league as the players are not representing India on that platform. “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.”

In the fifth edition of HCL Grant’s felicitation ceremony India’s first World Cup winning captain was also asked about his illustrated career. He was asked if he had felt the same ever. Kapil agreed to the same and said, “So many times, yes.”

He went on to explain how not getting the wickets after delivering 10 overs can make one exhausted. “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 opined that it is about performing well and the brain responds accordingly. “It’s a very emotional thing. Your mind, your brain works like that. Performances make you very light and happy.”

But the World Cup winning captain did not want to answer whether his comments are related to India’s loss to New Zealand in the ODI series and the first Test in Wellington. “I don’t know. It’s very difficult and unfair for me to see TV and make a statement.”
