The Indian Premier League has emerged as a major cricket tournament in the last few years. In the pursuit of earning crores, many players ignore the national team and participate in the IPL.
But former Australia leg-spinner Shane Warne does not like this thing. He said that the Cricket Board should not choose such players in the national team.
This statement of Warne has come about organizing the remaining matches of IPL 2021.
IPL 2021 had to be postponed after 29 matches due to Corona. Now the remaining matches will be played in the UAE in September-October.
However, during this time many teams have to tour different countries. This includes teams like England, Australia. In such a situation, it can be difficult for the players to choose between playing for the IPL and the country. The same thing is knocking Warne. Because he feels that players will ignore the national team and play in IPL in order to earn money.
Warne said in the ‘Road to Ashes’ podcast that I have no problem with the money players are getting from IPL or other leagues. It is a good thing if they want to earn money, let them do so.
But if you want to play cricket for your country and then you choose IPL, then it is not right to choose players who do so in the national team. Because then it will happen that players will rest on the pretext and will not play Test cricket and will miss the opportunity to play for the country because of money. Which is a bad thing.
