South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis has conceded that the booking of the Indian Premier League (IPL) just before the World Cup involves “worry” for him. The 34-year-old attested that damage to one of their bowlers previously the World Cup could turn out to be a noteworthy blow for them.
“The conspicuous one for me is the IPL. It’s simply before the World Cup and the exact opposite thing you need is one of your bowlers getting harmed just before the competition. It’s something that is a worry for us and we have to take a gander at how we can play that situation out best,” Sport24 cited Du Plessis, as saying.
Discussing the outstanding task at hand on the bowlers in the wake of the World Cup, the right-hand batsman said that it is still too soon to settle on choices with respect to the issue adding that it is critical to concentrate on the job that needs to be done and remain in present.
“It’s still excessively far out to begin settling on choices since will affect the World Cup. Most likely closer to the World Cup you will see us settle on choices like that,” Du Plessis said.
“It’s constantly imperative to remain in the present in such a case that you take a gander at the World Cup the entire time you will dismiss what’s happening before you,” he included.
The 2019 version of the IPL is relied upon to be held in the period of March and April while the World Cup is slated to be held from May 30 to July 14 in England.
