News of Stokes' retirement sparks debate, Nasser Hussain said this about ICC

Former England captain Nasser Hussain has strongly condemned the busy schedule of international cricket. He called it "quite exhausting for the players." Hussain's reaction comes after all-rounder Ben Stokes, who played a key role in helping England win the World Cup title in 2019, announced his retirement from the ODI format.

Stokes, the 31-year-old captain of the Test team, has announced his retirement from ODIs, saying it is not "possible" for him to play in all three formats. Hussain, referring to Stokes in his column for 'Sky Sports', wrote, "It's disappointing. Which shows how the cricketing program is right now. It's going to be exhausting for the players.'' He further said, "If the ICC will make its own cricket schedules and various cricket boards are going to organize their tournaments in the remaining time, the players will not be able to play for a long time." He said Stokes has said goodbye to a format at the age of 31, it can't be right. The cricket schedule needs to be looked at. At the moment, it's like a joke.

Hussain said, "It was surprising for me to hear about his retirement. He gave the team the biggest success in 2019. If you ask me to pick a player from this team, Stokes is the biggest match-winner.''

The bilateral series will have to be over: However, Stokes has played only nine ODIs since the 2019 World Cup. He walked out from the team for a long time under injury, mental health breaks and workload management. Another former England captain Michael Vaughan said that to reduce the burden of players, teams will have to cut bilateral series. He has said 'If cricket boards around the world organize their league cricket, then bilateral ODI and T20 series will have to be abolished.'
