Former Australia cricketer Tom Moody feels that a player’s performance in leagues like ILT20 and Indian Premier League (IPL) will be significant to get selected for the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup. The marquee event is scheduled to commence in June in the West Indies and the United States of America.

The veteran stated that every team might be examining the players’ performance in the aforementioned franchise league which showcases high-quality cricket. Moody made these remarks during a virtual media interaction facilitated by the Desert Vipers team of the ILT20.

“The IPL (set to be played between March-May), along with any other T20 tournament, like the ILT20, is important for any player to be performing because every home team is looking at the performances of all their players in these tournaments because of the high-quality cricket in these (leagues),” Moody was quoted as saying by NDTV.

“If you are scoring runs, taking wickets and showing consistency, it only puts you in a good position as an individual when it comes to those final tough decisions around the selection table. It allows you to continue with that sort of confidence, going into an important (T20) World Cup,” he added.

The 58-year-old went on to suggest that teams and players will have to adjust quickly to a non-regular cricketing venue like the United States of America. Meanwhile, he admitted that the players may be familiar with the conditions in the Caribbean nation.

“Many people have played in the Caribbean but what would be presented in the US will be one of many different things. Talking about world-class players, they have played in all sorts of conditions and situations. I believe the top players and teams would adapt pretty quickly, whether it’s chasing down a total over 200 or even low-scoring ones,” Moody cobcluded.
