Giving clarity on the discussions that took place, Vinod Rai remarked that it bore fruit, “We had extensive discussion with the players and spoke to them on the number of matches they play, the Future Tour Programme (FTP) and compensation package etc. The discussions were fruitful,” Rai was quoted as saying by ANI.

Recently, Indian skipper Virat Kohli had raised his concerns over the intense schedule. This season has seen the team play some continuous cricket throughout the year. He and many other players had requested the BCCI to give rest for the same.

Rai further told that the high packed schedule of the Indian team was also one of the discussing points. Deeming the players right, he ensured that players will be given ample rest. He also spoke about the future tour programmes and the compensation package.

It remains to be seen what measures would be undertaken following the meeting with the Indian cricketers. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli has been rested for the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
