So, the BCCI has decided to prepone the IPL from its usual slot of April to March so as to give enough rest for the world cup bound players before the marquee event.
There are also concerns regarding any injuries that can occur to a player who might be a vital cog in their national team. Recently, there were reports suggesting that Jasprit Bumrah could be rested and may not play the entire league stage that Mumbai Indians play.
Similarly, there was talk not long before that many of the players would be rested during the course of two-month long extravaganza known as the IPL. One good thing is that many of the teams are prepared and have picked enough like to like replacements who might not feature in the world cup scheme of things of their respective countries.
In this slideshow, we will look at one player from each team barring Rajasthan Royals (as they don't have any Indian player bound for World Cup at the moment) who could be rested more often than not during the IPL.
#7 Delhi Capitals- Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan is one of the most prominent limited overs batsmen in the world of cricket. Delhi Capitals recently brought the southpaw before the IPL auctions through trade from Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Dhawan is a certainty for the World Cup and India will want him at his full fitness. He along with Virat and Rohit form a top 3 that is almost impossible to match.
Coming to the Delhi Capitals, they have talented Indian batsman who can step up the plate and fill the void left by Dhawan if he gets rested for some of the games.
