The IPL has become one of the best platforms for young Indian cricketers to showcase their talents and increase their chances of gaining a place in the national team. However, Priyam Garg feels domestic cricket is equally important for a player to succeed at the international level.

When asked to compare the significance of domestic cricket and the IPL in an Indian player’s career, Garg replied:

“I think both domestic cricket and IPL are equally important for me. Domestic cricket has different challenges. If you do well in domestic cricket, you get a chance in the IPL. In my opinion, if you perform well in domestic matches, it will be easier for you when you play at the international level.”

“Sometimes, you do not get enough opportunities in the IPL. But in domestic cricket, you get the chance to prove yourself. Thus, I give equal importance to both,” added Garg.
