Australia batsman Joe Burns has announced that he is not interested in playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
After making his Test debut during the recent four-Test series against India, Burns is determined to cement a spot for himself in Australia’s Test squad.
“Test cricket is my priority and I am not too keen to go to the IPL,” Burns said. “I enjoy playing the longer form of the game and I want to try to make myself as good as I can at long-form cricket. My main aim is to play as much Test cricket as possible.
“If I had nominated for the IPL and got picked up by a franchise, it would have been my first time going over there. But trying to learn to play T20 cricket in Indian conditions is very different to what I want to be doing after that.”
