While speaking on his YouTube channel, the former Pakistani skipper slammed the ICC and asked if the cricketing body was sleeping? He also said that the players should give more importance to the national team and not the private leagues. Inzamam also said that earlier this year when the Pakistani team travelled to South Africa, many players had pulled out of the team due to the IPL and history has repeated itself again. "What message are they (ICC) trying to give? Players are giving importance to private leagues and not international cricket. It’s like degrading international cricket. If you see the whole sequence, it’s happening only against Pakistan,” he said while talking about the ICC.
The remaining season of the IPL 2021 will be held on September 19, 2021. The megaevent will happen in UAE. The fans are waiting eagerly for the IPL 2021 to begin soon. Pakistan will play three-match ODI series against New Zealand and will also be playing five T20 games. The first ODI between Pakistan and New Zealand begins on September 17, 2021.
