Woolmer says ICC not to be blamed for excessive cricket

Pakistan’s coach Bob Woolmer believes it is unfair to only blame the International Cricket Council (ICC), for any fears of players being overburdened by the number of Test and international matches they are scheduled to play in the next six years.

“I don’t think the ICC should be blamed. Any programme finalised is not done independently by them. Member boards have a big say in it and I think it is time the boards thought about players facing a burnout due to excessive cricket,” he told ‘The News’ here on Friday.
