Level of IPL at par with international cricket: Gautam Gambhir

Cricketer-turned-politician Gambhir believes that players will get a chance to prepare better for the World Cup by playing in the IPL.
Gambhir said, “The passion and quality in IPL, I believe, is equal to or better than international cricket. Imagine you have gone to the World Cup against South Africa or Sri Lanka or after playing the IPL. You will be able to prepare better by playing in IPL. So India will get more domestic advantage than Pakistan or any other country. Apart from Pakistan, India has New Zealand and Afghanistan in the group.
