Irish captain want to change it all: Follow INDIA IRELAND T20 Series LIVE Updates with InsideSport.IN
“We have a number of players who are good at T20. We are all aware how competitive it is to get into the IPL. That’s a huge ambition for a lot of us. That’s the pinnacle of T20 cricket.
You see how quickly certain players develop when they get access to the league. We have a number of players who play in different leagues but not the IPL. We want to change that” Balbirnie told to TOI.
