Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has indicated that he would prefer to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) rather than Australian domestic cricket. He said that this prestigious T20 league has been successful in making the average players 'much better'.
The cricket calendar has been affected by the Covid-19pandemic and Hazelwood also believed that it would be a 'difficult' decision for those conducting the IPL to explore the possibility of the event.
He told Cricinfo, “Many things are yet to come together but the IPL is an important part of the year in the lives of many players. It is perhaps the world's toughest T20 competition with the Big Bash. You learn a lot about playing T20 cricket in it. '
Hazlewood said, “You must have seen that people become better players than this. So there are a lot of positive things in it. In such a situation, we can skip playing for New South Wales for some matches as part of international cricket preparations. It will be a difficult but personal decision. '
