New Zealand player Ross Taylor says IPL has helped his team players

All around the world in the cricket team of different countries there are some of the best players that are considered just perfect for the game. One such player is from New Zealand team is Ross Taylor. The senior batsman of the team recently had said that the Indian Premiere League has helped the players from his country. IPL has helped and benefited them in gaining confidence to play in front of the best players in world cricket.

“I have been fortunate to play for a few teams (in the IPL) and play with great players. I think, there has been an aura around Australia, South Africa and a few of these teams.

I think IPL helped New Zealand cricket sort of bridge that gap a little bit (between players),” Taylor said.

“Once you know these players….You are picking their brains and you are watching them train and that has helped New Zealand cricket immensely.

“Players who have played over there and (who will play in) years to come will benefit by rubbing shoulders with best players in the world,” further the player said.

The senior batsman from the New Zealand in the IPL has played with Pune Warriors, Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the past. After the heart-breaking loss of kiwis in the finals now they will be playing a two match Test series against Sri Lanka that starts from August 14.

“They (Sri Lanka) know the conditions very well and play very well in these conditions. And upsetting South Africa at home would give them a lot of confidence. They are also looking to play the (ICC) Test Championship. Sri Lanka is genuinely a tough place to play cricket in,” Taylor said.

“I have been fortunate to play for a few teams (in the IPL) and play with great players. I think, there has been an aura around Australia, South Africa and a few of these teams.

I think IPL helped New Zealand cricket sort of bridge that gap a little bit (between players),” Taylor said.
