Indian players unhappy with BCCI's logistics handling, confused about mini-IPL
Kumble listed down problems and complaints of his entire squad.
New Delhi: New coach Anil Kumble is trying to bring about a new communication mechanism in Indian cricket.
Apart from addressing cricket-related problems of players, Jumbo is willing to solve issues players face due to BCCI's administration.
According to a report in the Indian Express, Kumble listed down problems and complaints of his entire squad.
During the 'roadmap' meet in Bengaluru, the former India captain conveyed to the Indian board about some of the players' concerns.
Several players were not satisfied with the manner in which BCCI handled its logistics. They wanted the board to inform them about travel plans well in advance in order to avoid clashes with personal commitments.
The report claims that the board has now been instructed to inform travel plans to players at least a month in advance.
“Players have been saying how the board doesn’t inform them about the schedule in advance. The BCCI will look into it and plan accordingly,” a BCCI official told the newspaper.
There was also confusion among played as to why the mini-IPL and Duleep Trophy were scheduled at the same time.
It remains to be seen whether the traditionally conformist Indian cricket system adopts or resists the changes Kumble is trying to bring in.
