The Indian Premier League is undoubtedly the largest cricket league in the world, not only in terms of size but also in terms of quality and price on offer.
IPL 2022 is set to be a long time coming with two more teams – Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans – added to the League from this year.
While the IPL is still global, it has been blamed, all the time and beyond, for its negative impact on international teams.
For example, this year after the loss of Ashes, former England players and experts argue that the English Premier League champions have led to the decline of the Test Cricket in England.
Indian off-spinnet R Ashwin has published bashing similar criticism in his latest episode on his YouTube channel.
It makes a point that today cricketers are involved in many international events and the IPL is a part of them. There are many world events, T20 leagues and domestic leagues as well. So saying IPL is wrong.
He said, “The IPL has been under the radar for many years now. Suddenly, some past players will say bad things about the IPL for no reason. Imagine the situation in 2008 or 2010. Only 20-25 cricketers will be. in the Indian schedule for the Indian delegation. “
Ashwin also talks about how Indian cricket has benefited from the IPL. He said, “Even when I started, my parents and grandparents asked me if cricket would help me to support the business. Only 15-20 or 25 cricketers would get benefits in 10 years. But now, because of the IPL, at least 75-80 Indian cricketers win world titles every year. ”
“Not only with the IPL. Players get opportunities to play in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and showcase their talents there well. In addition to this, players also get opportunities in the Media, training program, or some programs “Another ecosystem that benefits them. That is a great sign for the IPL.”
