Now IPL has become the favorite franchise league of cricketers around the world, and everyone wants to be a part of this T20 league of India because of its exposure, big stage, and huge money.

But meanwhile, former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg has given a controversial statement regarding IPL and young cricketers.

Brad Hogg gave a big statement regarding IPL
Brad Hogg, who has played 7 Tests, 124 ODIs and 15 T20 Internationals for Australia, said, “I think the IPL is affecting Indian cricket, as young players coming through the system are more interested in playing T20 IPL cricket. Are focusing. Because there’s probably a bit more money in it, it’s a shorter format, it’s quicker and you can finish games quicker.”
He further added, “When they focus on that T20 cricket scenario, they do not focus on the longer formats. They don’t know how bowlers set up batsmen to take wickets and how batsmen build their innings to bat for long periods of time. These are not the generations who are currently playing international cricket like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. It is the young players who are just making their debut for India who are most affected by it.
