THOUGH he has stopped short of saying back-breaking the scheduling of tours, Virat Kohli is apparently not happy with the manner in which tours are being planned. Just four days ago the Indian team had finished two gruelling series, first against Sri Lanka and then Australia. They had barely the time to pack their bags to take a flight to New Zealand. They had not enough time to shake off jet lag when they had to launch into another gruelling series. No doubt the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) pays sumptuously to the members of the national team than any other cricket board in the world but that does not mean that the players should be treated in such a manner as not to give them even a breathing time and time enough to relax and tend to their bodies and minds. This is taking a heavy toll on cricketers with several players getting injured on a regular basis. It is no surprise the injury list gets longer with some of the players remaining the members of all the three formats like captain Virat Kohli himself with no respite.
