Marcus Stoinis recently expressed his view towards IPL on the YouTube channel RevSportz to Boria Majumdar. “Look, to an extent for a lot of the Australian cricketers, but personally, what India and the IPL have done for my cricket – it’s not only has changed my life but also changed my cricket career. Leading into the things like the IPL we’ve been in our own bubble, with our own coaches with our own mates playing in the same team. Whereas the IPL has opened our eyes with access to coaches all over the world in different conditions, from players, I think you learn more from players than anyone else,” he said.
