Former India all-rounder Kapil Dev wants the Board of cricket Control of India (BCCI) to buy private jets now that BCCI is making a lot of making to avoid fatigue.

Recently, India head coach Ravi Shastri reported in a video conference with the Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) has requested them to plan a tour in such a manner that players get adequate time to recover. He also highlighted how long flights and traveling takes a toll on the players.

India recently returned from Sri Lanka after a playing a three match Tests series followed by five ODI’s and lone T20I. The team is preparing for locking horns with the mighty Australians for a five match ODI series followed by three T20I’s scheduled to be played from September 17 to October 13.

India will then host New Zealand to play three ODI’s and T20I’s each after which they will again host Sri Lanka for a test and limited over’s series.

The Indian World Cup winning captain recently came as a savior to Shastri’s problem. In an interview with TOI, Kapil said, “Now that BCCI is making good money; it should have its own plane. It will save a lot of time and make life easier for Team India. The board can afford it. They should have done it five years ago. I would also love to see some cricketers buying their own aircraft in the days to come. In the US, top golfers have their own planes. I don’t see any reason why our players can’t buy it as it will save them a lot of time. I also believe that if BCCI owns planes, the players will get enough rest between matches. I am sure BCCI can also afford the parking charges.” He also added that it will create employment for some 20 odd individuals.

Notably, Kapil Dev shared an idea with BCCI to establish guest houses in metro cities to accommodate cricketers instead of paying huge hotel bills.
