Canadian player Rizwan Cheema talks to CricInfo..
“This is kind of the world stage,” Cheema told ESPNcricinfo. “Playing with international players, all the top players from around the world, it is a big chance for the associate players to show their abilities.”
Beyond the potential monetary rewards though, the BPL gives the Associate players a chance to hone their skills in a different part of the world. “That’s the professional life,” Cheema said. “Go and play in different countries and with different types of players. Makes you stronger mentally, and technically too.”
