The embarrassing country vs club debate triggered by Gautam Gambhir’ injury at the fag end of IPL IV has forced the BCCI to jump into action.

The Indian board is now looking to put in place an injury-management policy that the franchise are expected to stringently follow from next year.

The matter is likely to be put forward and discussed at the IPL governing council meeting at a later stage.

According to sources,the BCCI is keen to reduce the role of franchise-employed physiotherapists when it comes to the treating contracted players. Besides,the IPL team owners will not be able to decide when and where the elite Indian cricketers get treated on getting injured.

These steps are being considered in the wake of Gambhir neglecting recurring pain in his shoulder and the Knight Riders management keeping the BCCI in the dark about the injury.

Previously,Sehwag who has been postponing a surgery on his right shoulder,didn’t go under the knife following the successful World Cup campaign since he had to play IPL. And it was only after the team that he led — the Delhi Daredevils — were out of contention for a playoff spot,that he ended up taking a medical break.

The BCCI’s new move might not go well with the 10 IPL franchises since,they wouldn’t have much control on the players that they have spent millions of dollars on.
