India have plenty of players and the two new teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL) can be an example of it as well. However, like IPL, two new teams playing at the same can be seen too as there were talks of players’ workload management considering Team India’s hectic cricketing schedule. However, in 2021, two different senior cricket teams were seen in action where Virat Kohli-led India were in England and Shikhar Dhawan-led Team India were playing against Sri Lanka. According to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah, a similar situation can be seen in future too as Indian cricket will have enough players to field two different teams at the same time as well.

“I have had discussions with NCA head VVS Laxman and we will always have 50 players in our roster. In future, you will have a scenario, where the Indian Test team will be playing a series in one country and the white-ball team will be engaged in a series in a different country. We are going in that direction where we will have two national teams ready at the same time,” Jay Shah told PTI.

With the BCCI planning a bigger window for the Indian Premier League in future to host more matches, Jay Shah shared that it won’t impact India’s bilateral series as well.

“Indian cricket will remain strong as long as world cricket remains strong. Let me assure you of this. The BCCI is committed to international cricket. And it’s not just about India versus Australia or India versus England marquee series, we are committed to playing even the smaller nations. All bilateral international commitments across all formats will be honoured. We are playing Ireland in two T20 Internationals this month only. We want a strong robust international circuit and want to help the smaller cricketing nations by playing against them,” Jay Shah concluded.
