Buttler said the League is like a fantastic cricket he aspired to play as a child along with the top stars of the game rubbing shoulders, making massive strides as a white baller after a few seasons of IPL.

“A couple of the matchups in IPL are awesome. Bangalore was one of the top three teams with Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Chris Gayle who came up and see them against Jasprit Bumrah or a Dale Steyn or Lasith Malinga. 

Buttler credited Kevin Pietersen, former skipper of Australia, who advocated a separate IPL window, to pave the way for English players to participate in this rich tournament.

“The IPL has a pretty interesting history for English cricket. He clarified the documentary about Kevin Pietersen and how he wanted to be included and he faced the roadblocks
