The ICC has beneficial a minimal preparation interval of eight-12 weeks for bowlers returning to Test cricket, six weeks for ODIs and five-six weeks for T20Is.

“Playing one day cricket or Test cricket, a good eight weeks of leading and bowling at full pace to get into that match fitness. So, it will be a bit tougher for the bowlers,” added the pacer, who performed 76 Tests and 221 ODIs.
