IPL 2021; Tymal Mills credits IPL for England’s T20 preparations: England will be well prepared for the Twenty20 World Cup because half of the squad are getting used to conditions in the United Arab Emirates by playing in the Indian Premier League, bowler Tymal Mills said.

The IPL was suspended near its halfway stage in May as India grappled with a surge of Covid-19 cases and two franchises reported several infections.

IPL 2021; “One of our advantages is that we’ve got half the squad playing in the IPL at the moment,” Mills, who was recalled to the squad for the first time since February 2017, told reporters on Monday.
“I’m sure we’ll come out of that with a bunch of information and … we’ll be well-prepped and well-versed by the time we get together. I’m sure we’ll be full of confidence and back ourselves to beat any team.
