ICL: Indian Cricket League

IPL more than a cash cow: McCullum


New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum believes the lure of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is so great that it is inevitable English players will before too long be involved in the Twenty20 tournament. ‘It’s not just the money, but the tournament itself - the opportunity to play with some of the greatest players in the world, an opportunity you would never otherwise get; sitting in a dressing room with guys like Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly and working out how they go about the game. You can’t buy that experience. ‘I’m sure we’ll all look back on it as a pretty defining moment in terms of international cricket.’
