The Indian Premier League is a great platform to sharpen the skills. Keeping this in mind, Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram said that the England and Pakistani players are missing big time by not featuring in the cash rich Twenty tournament. The IPL has improved the Indian cricket big time as the Indian batsmen have learned the art of playing innovative strokes and especially the Indian fielding has reached a new level which has helped India doing very well in One day Internationals and T20Is.

England who were knocked out in the first round of the World Cup 2015 has only two or three players in the IPL. In the first few seasons Pakistan players participated in the tournament. The Indian crickete has tremendous T-20 players like Sheryas Iyer, Mayank Aggarwal, Manish Pandey who can play in the Indian team because of the way they play cricket. Pakistan also lost in the quarter finals and then was whitewashed by Bangladesh 3-0 which is the lowest point in their cricketing history.

By playing in the IPL the batsmen, bowlers they get to learn a lot and get the exposure of playing front of thousands of people. In international cricket they play with each other but while playing in IPL they play together and know their strengths of each player.

Pakistan and England players must come to participate in the IPL so that they can benefit and improve their skills, said former pace legend.
