The IPL and other T20 leagues have benefited cricket, but Aravinda de Silva. A former captain of Sri Lanka urged India to let its best players compete in international tournaments. David Warner of Australia and Jos Buttler of England are just two examples of the elite foreign talent that the Indian Premier League has attracted to play in the frantic two-month spectacle for millions of rupees. The current T20 leagues, according to Aravinda, are comparable to English domestic cricket in the latter part of the 20th century. Which attracted star players from around the globe to hone their skills and acquire experience. Aravinda had a distinguished career that includes a 1996 World Cup title and was characterized by his forceful batting approach.
It is comparable to the county cricket of that era, which gave the English players an advantage, the 56-year-old, who played for English county Kent in the 1990s, said AFP.
In leagues like the IPL, Big Bash, or the Hundred and T20 Blitz in England, players can develop.
The Indian Premier League, which began in 2008, has sparked imitative competitions abroad.
The IPL is more lucrative than football’s English Premier League, which is valued at $11 million per match, according to a recent auction for broadcast rights that valued it at an astounding $6.2 billion, or $15 million every game. However, it is still the main attraction.
because Indian cricket players aren’t allowed to compete in other sports. When it comes to the major leagues, “if you have one dominant country, you can see from the IPL that they basically operate a monopoly,” Aravinda continued.
As a result, if the standard keeps dropping and there is no serious competition. It will likely eventually have an effect on the entire game.
Rich rewards from IPL
“Until (India) finds a way to inspire the other countries and persuade them to grasp the kind of support levels which the game currently deserves, it’s a negative for the cricket globe.
“It’s up to the ICC (the sport’s international governing body) to ensure that it’s done in a way that these countries sustain improvement; otherwise, we don’t want a situation like Zimbabwe and South Africa, where their standard of cricket fell.”
The IPL has been advantageous for specific Sri Lankan athletes. The second-highest wicket total in the 10-team league this year belongs to Wanindu Hasaranga, a leg-spinner who Royal Challengers Bangalore paid $1.42 million for.
Five clubs in Sri Lanka’s LPL’s most recent season were led by athletes from that country, including Angelo Mathews and Niroshan Dickwella. Aravinda also praised Pakistan for holding up well with the Pakistan Super League in spite of little funding and exposure.
Sri Lanka is currently trailing Australia 1-0 in a two-match Test series, but Aravinda is still confident that the home team will come back in the second game. which begins in Galle on Friday.
And he extended his appreciation to Australia for traveling to the island nation to play five one-day international matches and two Test matches. giving some relief to Sri Lankans who are suffering from an unheard-of economic crisis
Despite all of these issues, we could see there was a passion because several of the one-day series’ venues were crowded, said Aravinda.
“I appreciate the Australians who visited and brought smiles to the Sri Lankan people. It was amazing. I sincerely appreciate them.”
