Ian Chappell, former skipper and batting great feels that Australian Star players should involve more with Australia domestic series rather than Indian Premier League (IPL).

According to a report published in Times of India, Chappell said that when financial needs of Aussie player are being taken care by the cricket board, they should eye on the home league rather than any foreign league like Indian Premier League.

Players’ obligation should be to Australia

The former skipper further said playing IPL would be okay for a player whose most of the income comes through the league but even though it’s a matter of concern for board members.

“I could mount a case more for a peripheral player who doesn’t earn a lot of money in Australia; if the bulk of his income is going to come from the IPL, well that’s something I would have some sympathy for if I was a CA board member,” said Ian Chappell over the TV Show Wide World Sports.

“But the top players are well paid, and that argument doesn’t hold any water. Their obligation should be to Australia,” he added.

Aussie players hoped to play a reschedule IPL

According to Cricket Australia digital website,, Australia’s most high-profile three-format players such as Cummins, Steve Smith and David Warner are waiting for this year’s IPL to be rescheduled after it was postponed indefinitely in April due to the virus.

While David Warner and Pat Cummins said that they will decide whether to play in the Big Bash League or not, once the international schedule is decided post-coronavirus pandemic; they have clearly hoped IPL would get a window.
