Ricky Ponting calls for IPL window
Ricky Ponting has once again highlighted the need for a separate window for the Indian Premier League
The Australian felt that scenario was unavoidable with players earning far more in T20 competitions than they would playing for their countries. “You can understand the players that are opting out of international cricket to play IPL,” he told the Australian Associated Press (AAP).
“New Zealand’s a good case study there, they just don’t schedule any international cricket when the IPL’s as they would have lost most of their players to IPL. There’s something to be learnt there,” he said.
