Lad further added that in the last seven months, anyone is coming to open, then someone is coming to bowl, hence, the team does not look stable at all. “I don’t think workload management is the reason. Everyone around the world is playing cricket. If this is the case then don’t play in IPL if you want to win the World Cup,” said Dinesh Lad.
