IPL impacted injuries we’re seeing: Langer

BRISBANE, Jan 13: He loves the IPL but Australia coach Justin Langer on Wednesday questioned the timing of the last year’s edition, which he believes could have been a contributing factor in the injury setbacks that both his and the Indian team have endured in the ongoing series.
The IPL was held in the September-November window in 2020 in the United Arab Emirates due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The lucrative tournament is usually held in India during the April-May window. India have had a spate of injuries since the IPL and also in the current Australia series. Australia too had its share of injuries.
“It is really interesting how many injuries (it) has been throughout this summer. I can’t help and think that the IPL this year (2020) was in really, probably wasn’t ideal timing for anyone, certainly for such a big series like this,” Langer said at a virtual press conference. (PTI)
