Former Indian player Virender Sehwag is not happy with the scheduling of the Asia Cup in which only Virat Kohli and Co. are scheduled to play back-to-back matches.
The tournament is scheduled to start from September 15 with the match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. On the other hand, India will be playing their first game on 18th against the qualifying team and then take in arch-rivals Pakistan on the very next day.
Sehwag is just not impressed with the scheduling of the fixtures and wants Team India to not participate in the tournament.
The Asia Cup has been hastily arranged as India are supposed to end their England tour on September 11. This means there will be a less recovery time for many Indian players who are also part of the ODI set-up.
Sehwag, while talking to India TV, was extremely disappointed with Team India playing back to back games.
“I am really shocked to see the scheduling because which country plays back-to-back cricket matches these days? There was a gap of two days in between the T20 matches in England and here you are playing ODIs under hot Dubai weather and that too without a break. So, I don’t think this is a correct scheduling,” he said.
