Walsh missed playing in IPL

| May 30, 2014

West Former West Indian pacer Courtney Walsh would have loved to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) T20 cricket tournament that has become a rage in world cricket now attracting players from all countries.

“Yes I’d have loved to play in the IPL. It is only four overs and I keep telling people that I love to play in a cricket match where the captain can’t ask you to bowl more than four overs. You would have to focus your practicing skills and try and do the best you can. It is a challenge I would have loved to be able to do. Sadly, it came around after I retired. I am not here to compare how well or how badly I would have done here. It was just that the prospect of practicing new skills and bowling four overs is something that thrills me and I would have been happy to have had a chance of playing it,” the pacer told Indian media during a visit to the country recently.

He said he loves watching the IPL games now.

“I watch quite a lot of it. It keeps me up in the mornings or at nights because of the business I do something at home. It is something I follow not because of the West Indians in it. Yes, I want to see them and it is good to see so many West Indians playing but I think because of the nature of the game and the excitement it adds, it is something you have to watch. I enjoy watching them,” he stated.
