Star South African Fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has criticized the unrelenting schedule ahead of the calendar year. The cricketing schedule is jam-packed with matches played very frequently. Rabada admitted that it is difficult to play with the same intensity with the amount of cricket played in the year.
“The volume of cricket that you play these days, I won’t even lie – as much as we love the game and I always get back into like wanting to play and wanting to have the drive, sometimes it’s hard to get the drive with the amount of cricket that we play,”
Kagiso Rabada said as per cricket.com.au.
“At the end of the day, we are human beings. Imagine being up for every single game that you play with the amount of fixtures that we have,”
Rabada is not the first to lament on the grueling cricket schedule. His teammate Quinton De Kock, and several New Zealand players have canceled their central contracts due to hectic scheduling. Ben Stokes has retired from the ODI format to remain fresh for the longer format.
