London: Geoffrey Boycott, former England cricketer veteran, said the England and Wales Cricket Commission (ECB) should deduct money from English cricketers who preferred the Premier Indian League (IPL). However, Geoffrey Boycott forgot to write in his column that players participating in the IPL must pay 10 percent of the salary to their National Cricket Council.
English players will be available throughout the IPL tournament
England coach Chris Silverwood said last week that English players participating in the IPL would be available for the entire tournament. This means that English players from teams that reach the finals of this dazzling league are unlikely to be available for the initial test against New Zealand.
Boycott gave this statement
Boycott wrote in the Daily Telegraph: “All of these players have made their mark playing international cricket with England and are being paid well for it.” Boycott said: “The players forget that if they don’t do well for England, they won’t stand a chance in IPL.” In such a situation, he would have to show his dedication to England and pay his debt.
England matches should not be ignored
The former veteran said: “I don’t want to stop him from making money, but England matches should not be ignored.” He criticized the rotation policy, accusing the ECB of adopting a gentle attitude towards players. Boycott said: “England have not implemented the rotation policy in India properly and they have to leave a soft attitude to the players.

Boycott asked pointed questions
Boycott said players can quit the national team citing mental health, but not the IPL. He said: “I can say by saying that no player will leave the IPL for his wife, his girlfriends or his children. The IPL final, which starts on April 9, will be played on May 30, while the New Zealand tour of England kicks off with the first test match being played on June 2.
