At a time when BCCI is getting stricter about players playing in the domestic season, former India pacer S Sreesanth underlined the importance of playing domestic cricket saying players should play all the games especially, the domestic fixtures.

“It’s very important to play First-Class cricket. All the players should play all the matches, especially domestic cricket,” said the pace on the sidelines of the Indian Veteran Premier League (IVPL).

Sreesanth also shared his opinion on the mix of fast bowlers that the Indian team has witnessed for a while now with hardly any left-arm pacer in the setup.

Sreesanth said that a left-arm pacer brings a lot to the table and believes that there are bowlers who are grinding hard at the domestic level.

“There are surely bowlers who are playing at the domestic level. I’m sure there will be bowlers who will be eager to come and play. I won’t take any names but would say one thing, ‘Mehnat karo, India khel sakte ho’,” he said.

‘Rohit is a brilliant captain’

The former India bowler who was a part of the 2007 T20 World Cup-winning team alongside Rohit Sharma put his weight behind the current skipper. Sreesanth is confident that India will lift the T20 World Cup 2024 under Rohit’s captaincy.

“Rohit (Sharma) is a brilliant captain and a brilliant cricketer. This time I’m sure that the T20 World Cup which is going to take place in West Indies and USA, we will win the final for sure.”

‘Great to be part of IVPL’

The fast bowler who was part of the 2011 ODI World Cup winning team has been enjoying his time playing legends leagues and leagues for retired cricketers. Sreesanth lavished praise on IVPL and added that it’s great to be part of such a tournament.

A huge shout out to (Praveen) Tyagi bhai also for consistently organising a successful tournament like this. The ground here is very good and a lot of credit goes to the groundsmen as well for preparing this kind of a wicket,” he concluded.

The Board of Veteran Cricket in India have organised the second season of IVPL in Greater Noida.
