Stuart MacGill wants to play in IPL

Former Australian spinner Stuart MacGill has nominated himself for the Indian Premier League (IPL) player auction in February, following his return to Twenty20 cricket after eight years.

MacGill, 40, currently playing for Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League (BBL), believes that with a successful comeback with the Sydney Sixers, he can deliver in the IPL.

“I really don’t want to get too far ahead of myself here, but I am playing in the BBL because my kids thought I was getting old. I am proving to them that I can still cut it with the young blokes,” said MacGill, who retired from all forms of cricket in 2008.

“I just wanted to see if I could keep together physically and once I ticked that box I thought ‘hey, maybe it is worth my while’.

“Having played a couple of Twenty20 games now, I know I can do it. I don’t get too sore. I know I can run around enough. It is worth a go (IPL).”
