Root considers entering IPL mega-auction

Hobart, Jan 13: England’s Test captain Joe Root has revealed that he is considering entering the upcoming IPL auction, four years after going unsold in the auction for the lucrative T20 league.
Considered one of the modern greats of the game, Root is yet to play in the IPL after going unsold in the 2018 auction.
The 31-year-old batter, however, said he would look to play in the tournament only if it does not distract him from his Test career.
“Time is ticking but I have a lot to weigh up,” Root said, according to ESPNcricinfo.com.
Root had expressed his desire to play in the IPL earlier too even though he had decided against entering the auction. (PTI)
