Moreover, with the two events having almost no break. There is a debate about whether the players of the Indian T20 World Cup squad should be rested for a few games. However, Karim stated that no franchise would want their top players to be rest. Also, winning the Indian Premier League would be their main goal.
“Imagine there is a match in the playoffs and you have to rest Bumrah, will Mumbai Indians do it? They won’t. No franchise would want to do it, be it Delhi or RCB,” Saba Karim said.
