(South Africa)The IPL is a popular tournament and many players from foreign cricket teams also participate. This time also many foreign players are playing in IPL 2021. Among them, there are also many players of South Africa cricket team. Former South African spinner Paul Adams said that South Africa should ensure that their team qualifies for the World Cup to be held in full capacity in 2023. He also said that South Africa should avoid a confrontation with the Indian Premier League (IPL) in future.
Had to leave the series for IPL
Let us know that some senior players from South Africa had to give up the third and final ODI against Pakistan to play in the 14th season of IPL. Speaking to news agency IANS, Adams said that every match in an ODI series is important because it can decide how to qualify for the next World Cup to be held in India. Because of this, no one-day series should be taken lightly. The 2023 World Cup is in front, but it is important for them to qualify.
