BCCI secretary Jay Shah outlines departure plans for Indian players ahead of T20 World Cup | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: BCCI secretary Jay Shah confirmed the departure arrangements for Indian team players gearing up for the upcoming T20 World Cup. Shah detailed plans for players whose IPL teams fail to secure playoff berths, shedding light on their transition to international duty.
Shah clarified that players from non-playoff IPL teams will depart in two stages for the T20 World Cup.The initial batch, comprising players and coaching staff, is scheduled to leave on May 24, while the remaining contingent will depart after the IPL final on May 26.

Dispelling notions of resting players from non-playoff teams in the IPL’s final league games, Shah emphasized the importance of utilizing the tournament as a platform for skill development.

“Look at how well Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma played the other day. If [Jasprit] Bumrah gets to bowl to Head, what better opportunity is there to practice?,” Shah remarked during a media interaction at the BCCI headquarters.

Additionally, Shah provided updates on Lucknow Super Giants’ Mayank Yadav, who is currently sidelined with an injury. Acknowledging Yadav’s promising performance earlier in the IPL season, Shah revealed that the speedster will be under BCCI supervision.

Yadav joins a group of emerging pace bowlers without annual retainers, including Akash Deep, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Umran Malik, Yash Dayal, and Vidwath Kaverappa. These bowlers will receive continuous monitoring and support from the National Cricket Academy (NCA) medical staff, reflecting the BCCI’s commitment to nurturing burgeoning bowling talent in the country.
