ICL: Indian Cricket League

Asif warns against complacency


asifPakistan pacer Mohammad Asif has cautioned his team against taking touring Bangladeshis lightly.

“Bangladesh have one or two victories over Pakistan in the past and are certainly better than, say, Zimbabwe,” Asif said on Tuesday.

Asif said that the tour by Bangladeshis and Pakistani players’ participation in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) would come as a good preparation for the Asia Cup and Champions Trophy.

Both these competitions will be played in Pakistan this year — the former in June-July and the latter in September.

A number of Pakistani players have signed, like stars from all other Test-playing countries, for the inaugural edition of IPL which comprises of Twenty20 matches.

To a question, Asif said the financial bonanza for players through IPL would further popularise the game, instead of harming it, as players would be attracted to this sport from all strata of the society.
