Playing in IPL 2024 will help T20 World Cup preparations: Omarzai

Afghanistan all-rounder Azmatullah Omarzai feels that being part of Gujarat Titans in the upcoming Indian Premier League will help him prepare for the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup, scheduled in USA and West Indies in June 2024.

"Certainly it (taking part in the IPL) will help me for the World Cup. IPL is a top league and all the big players of the world take part in the competition and all of them are very experienced so it will be good for me that I will have the experience for the World Cup," Omarzai told Cricbuzz during an exclusive chat.

"I will have preparation (for the world cup) considering it is such a tournament that all the games are close and there is lot of pressure involved and lot of crowd comes. The environment is good and competitive. It will be good for me as the pressure that will come in the World Cup I will get used to in the IPL," he said.
