Slamming Cricket Australia’s rotation policy for players, former national selector Jamie Cox said those who are worried about fatigue should consider skipping the cash-rich Indian Premier League in April-May.

“The crux of the issue is that blokes get six weeks off a year under the (players’ association) Memorandum of Understanding and some of them choose to use that time to play T20 cricket,” Cox told ‘The Herald Sun’

I 'hate' IPL as much as anyone but there has to be a balance. you want to maximise players income AND performance of the national team. from that view i dont mind giving SL cricketers 6 wks off for them to play IPL as long as they priotise playing for SLC or resting over other leagues. that balance might be diff for aus depending on how much they are paid for their national duties.
