India Playing Too Much Cricket, Says Wasim Akram

New Delhi, Dec 12 (PTI) India are playing too much cricket resulting in injuries to their pacers and that could hurt the team's chances in next year's World Cup on the subcontinent, feels former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram.

Akram said the upcoming South African tour just before the World Cup in February has been ill-timed and will only exhaust the Indian players.

"I have been keenly following Indian cricket for a while and I can safely say that they are playing too much cricket.

Making a balanced cricketing calendar has been a problem with the Indian Board in the last five-six years.

"There is a serious overkill. India play too many matches round the year and no wonder their fast bowlers are getting injured far too often," said Akram.

"I will beg to differ with Imran Khan's views on India's upcoming tour of South Africa.
