Bangalore: The decision to play is a player's call and no player is forced to represent his club or country, particularly when it's a case of injury, the IPL CEO Sundar Raman has said. "I think it has always been up to the player to decide," he told ESPNcricinfo. "Firstly, he has to see whether he is fit or not. And the BCCI physio will take a look at the player and subject to a satisfactory report, he plays.
"The player knows his body better than anyone else does and I don't think I want to sit in judgement on that. If the physio believes that the player is not fit to play a game, he would report that and the player would not play the game.
"Nobody is forced to play. Nobody is forced to play for the country. Nobody is forced to play for their club."
