Moeen: I would like to be a part of IPL

England

England international Moeen Ali says he would love to play in the Indian Premier League someday as he would be able to learn the art of spin bowling from the best in the world.

The 28-year-old allrounder, who is with his national side in India for the World T20, also praised the IPL for making cricketers better as they get to share ideas with players from different nationalities.

Moeen said a press conference on arrival in India: "I would like to be a part of IPL someday. It is a big and glamorous tournament.

"I will get chance to learn from top spinners and bowlers there and get to share dressing room with them."

The offspinner and stylish left-handed batsman feels India's twin spinners Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have set the benchmark for slow bowlers around the world especially in their own conditions.

Moeen continued: "Ashwin and Jadeja have been consistent in their performance. They have brought in variations in their bowling and are doing really well for the side."

England start their World T20 campaign against 2012 champions West Indies in Mumbai on 15 March.
