‘Worry’ about my IPL team’s eye condition, says Kamindu Mendis
“It’s been 13 years since the IPL. That’s time for them to accept that it’s no longer the IPL it used to be. What’s unfortunate about it is that you can’t criticise players who were affected by Covid-19. You can only criticise the administration,” Ponting said.
‘Mamata urges BCCI to rethink decision to end IPL early
“In my opinion IPL didn’t go away because of the Indian cricket team playing in Tests in Australia. The Indian cricket team actually went to Australia to prepare for the Test matches and matches. So they played a match in Australia, that’s why nothing happened to the team.
The IPL is running for 13 years now. I do not believe it went away because of Australian bowlers or Australia-India Test match. All that happened to the Indian cricket team was that they prepared for the Test matches in Australia. The BCCI has a bit of responsibility to make sure that they are ready,” he said.
