“I Think It Is IPL Affecting Indian Cricket Because The Young Players….” Brad Hogg Blames IPL For India’s Poor Performance

The preparation for the next edition of IPL has been started and the franchise has submitted the retained player list, and now everyone has their eyes on the mini-auction for the IPL 2023, where every franchise will try their best to get world cricket superstars Ben Stokes, Kane Williamson, Sam Curran, Cameron Green, and Indian star players Mayank Agarwal, Ajinkya Rahane, Jaydev Unadkat.

The world cricket fraternity has been watching the biggest T20 league very precisely. Looking at the upcoming edition, the former Australian cricketer posted on Instagram that he has explained why IPL negatively impacts cricket. He stated that players are getting more cash, and they only keep the focus on T20 cricket, and it seems easier for them.

“I think it is IPL affecting Indian cricket because the young players that are coming through the system are more focused on playing T20 IPL cricket because there is probably a little more cash in it, it’s a short form, it’s quick and you get the game done and dusted. It seems a bit like easier money,” Hogg said.

Further, Hogg explained that youngsters are focusing on T20 cricket to become rich and not giving their best in the longest format of cricket.

“When they are focused on that T20 cricket scenario, they are not focused on the longer forms. They don’t know how bowlers set up batters to take wickets and how batters build their innings to bat for long periods of time. It’s not so much the generations that are playing international cricket right now like the Virat Kohli’s and Rohit Sharma’s. It’s younger players that are just debuting for India that are most affected,” Hogg added.
