This is one of the biggest concerns surrounding the Indian team since the last few years and it has cost the Indian team a lot of big tournaments and the number of injuries that are happening is not good for Indian cricket and ultimately it is harming the Indian team and that is not what is wanted by anyone.
So, let’s take a look at the reasons why so many Indian players are getting injured so often and even now for the World Test Championship Final against Australia, India are without some of the biggest stars and that will hurt the chances of the Indian team.
Giving more importance to the IPL
This is the first and Major reason that a lot of Indian players are getting Injured on a regular basis and the players do not want to skip the IPL because they get a lot of money from the franchises and they do not want to let down the teams that put so much trust in them and as a result even if the player is slightly injured they play with the pain because they want to play in the IPL and playing in the IPL which is such a highly competitive tournament that their injuries get more serious and they have to be out for long period of time. And the IPL is getting bigger and bigger and so this factor will not be going anywhere anytime soon.
Players not spending proper time at the NCA
The National Cricket Academy is the place where the best of the best players go to rehab their injuries when they get injured with the hope that they will recover soon and once again play for India soon but now the players do not prefer to go to the NCA but they go to their IPL medical Teams to get better and this is a fatal error because the NCA has been created so that the players can get healed as soon as possible and if they do not go to the NCA then how will they play for India and by doing all this the Indian team is the one which is suffering the most.

Players playing at 80% fitness for India In the fear that they will get dropped
This is legitimately one of the biggest reasons that so many Indian players are getting injured. The IPL www talked about before as the players do not want to miss the IPL, similarly they do not want to miss playing for India because they feel that if they are injured and they leave for a few months a new player would come in and perform as good and then that player will find it difficult to play for India again. However the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer and players like them should not be so insecure and think about the Indian team first and hopefully the injuries to KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer and the freak accident of Rishabh Pant will not cost India much in the World Test Championship Final.
