Indian Premier League is the best T20 league in the World. BCCI has been organizing this T20 league since 2008, and till now, this league has gained more fans following than any T20 league ever in the World. The auction for the next season of the IPL will be held on 23rd December 2022, and thus fans and experts are sharing their thoughts about the different franchises.
Earlier, many cricketers have addressed the word “workload management” and said we are playing IPL, and there is so much pressure. This is the issue of many Indian players and also of many overseas players. Speaking on this, India’s Legendary Cricketer Kapil Dev shared his thoughts and advised current cricketers on handling the pressure of the match. He explained that if you can’t handle the pressure of representing the country, then you should stop playing.
“I keep hearing, ‘We are playing the IPL. There is so much pressure.’ This word is so common, right? To them, I say, ‘Don’t play.’ Who is asking you to? There is pressure, but if you play at that level, you will be admired and abused. If you are afraid of abuse, then don’t play. You are representing the country, and you have pressure? How is that possible? Out of a country of 100 crores, 20 of you are playing, and then you say you have pressure? Instead, say it’s a matter of pride. You are getting so much love from people. Learn to take that pride,” Said Kapil Dev
Further speaking on this, Kapil Dev stated that you all know how a player selected from a country of population 100 crores and also make a strong comment on it to “open a banana stall or sell eggs.”
“Pressure is an American word. If you don’t want to work, don’t. Is anyone forcing you? Jaa ke kele ki shop lagao. Ande becho ja ke. But why do you take it as pressure when you have an opportunity? Please take it as pleasure and have fun with it. The day you start doing it, the job will appear easy. But if you call the same thing pressure, nothing good can come of it.”
