Dubai, Feb 16(ANI): International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat has put the onus on national teams to help stop star cricketers from burning out following complaints of fatigue ahead of the World Cup.

“We have reached a point where we think it is the optimum, but there is also some onus on the players, on the coaches, on the selectors to rotate or manage their squads accordingly,” Stuff.co.nz quoted Lorgat, as saying.

The ICC chief further said that the governing body was constantly looking at the calendar and encourages member countries to do the same.

“We always are concerned and try to monitor the volume of cricket. We talk about it all the time. We engage with each of the member boards, so it’s a very topical issue for us,” Lorgat said.

“What we are obviously challenged by is the bilateral arrangements that members make among themselves. We strike in our events in advance and as best as we can, but volume of cricket is something that challenges us and we’re very mindful of it,” he added. (ANI)
