England Test Captain Joe Root revealed that he is looking to re-enter the world’s largest cricket league auction after missing any team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction four years ago. .
Joe Root, who is considered one of the great players of the game in the current era, was not offered by any team at the IPL auction in 2018. He has not been part of the Indian Premier League since then.
The 31-year-old veteran English hitter said he’d like to play in the IPL only if it doesn’t affect his Test career. Root told ‘ESPNcricinfo.com’: ‘Time is short but I have many things to think about.
He further said, will it have a negative effect on my test cricket game? If I don’t think so, I’ll put myself up for auction. But I would never do anything to make it difficult to play Test Cricket for England. It is very important to ensure that, because it is my priority and that of the other players.
Let us tell you that before next season, the big IPL auction will take place in Bangalore on February 12-13. Earlier, Australia fast pitcher Mitchell Starc also said Wednesday that he is considering returning to the IPL despite the hectic schedule ahead.
