Being a celebrity is blissful for any cricketer as it earns them the limelight no matter where they go. However, there’s a flip side to it and it can’t be ignored by any stretch of the imagination. Privacy is one issue, which a celebrity needs to deal with. Recently, the Indian cricketers had complained about lack of privacy while travelling in regular economy class. As per reports, tall players like Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and KL Rahul find it difficult to adjust their legs in the second class.

Also, the players complained that they had to wait for a long time to collect their luggage. Moreover, they are also being mobbed by the general public during all this, which can be very tiring for the cricketers. Nevertheless, following the complaints, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to provide the cricketers with business class travels during domestic tours.

Should have its own plane

In a recent interview with Times of India, Kapil Dev said that the BCCI should have resorted to this step five years ago. “Now that BCCI is making good money, it should have its own plane. It will save a lot of time and make life easier for Team India. The board can afford it. They should have done it five years ago,” he quoted.

The former all-rounder also mentioned about how it will turn out to be beneficial for a cricketer. “I would also love to see some cricketers buying their own aircrafts in the days to come. In the US, top golfers have their own planes. I don’t see any reason why our players can’t buy it as it will save them a lot of time. I also believe that if BCCI owns planes, the players will get enough rest between matches. I am sure BCCI can also afford the parking charges.”

The need for comfort

Nowadays, cricket is played throughout the years and cricketers get very little rest. Consequently, the chances of fatigue increase. Hence, it’s essential for the cricket boards to make things convenient and comforting for the cricketers.
