ECB too soft on its players, should dock money if players put IPL over national


Former England opener Geoffrey Boycott has urged England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to dock money from players who prioritise Indian Premier League over national obligation. However what Boycott missed out in his column for the Daily Telegraph is that every one cricket boards whose enlisted players within the IPL must pay 10 p.c of their salaries to the respective boards.
Last week, England head coach Chris Silverwood confirmed that IPL-bound England players might be obtainable for all the match, which implies these concerned within the ultimate phases of the cash-rich league are almost certainly to overlook the opening Test in opposition to New Zealand. “All these players made their names playing international cricket with England and are well paid, rightly so. Nobody begrudges them rich rewards,” Boycott wrote within the `Daily Telegraph`.
“Players seem to forget the IPL would not come calling for them if they had not performed for England first. So they owe a debt of gratitude and loyalty to put England first. “I’d by no means cease them from incomes that however not by lacking video games for England to do it,” he added. Claiming that the board is treating the players in a “namby-pamby means”, the previous opener slammed the much-debated rotational coverage.
“England messed up with a rotation policy in India and must stop treating players in a namby-pamby way. “If players wish to go residence for a break from England obligation, dock their money. Better nonetheless don`t choose them until they will conform to be obtainable for an entire collection,¿ he wrote. Boycott stated if a cricketer is dealing with psychological well being points or is unable to deal with the bubble he should be given the choice to go residence. However, the 80-year-old feels that not one of the English players would miss IPL matches because of fatigue.
“Let`s be clear any player who suffers from mental health issues or cannot handle the bubble has to be released to go home. No problem with that. “But I guess you’ll not see any of our players leaving the IPL as a result of they miss their spouse, girlfriend or children.” The IPL is slated to start from April 9 with the ultimate scheduled to be performed on May 30, whereas the opening Test in opposition to New Zealand begins on June 2. Seven English players, who had been a part of the Test collection in opposition to Sri Lanka and India, together with Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes and Sam Curran, are slated to play within the league.
