Victoria Bushranger youngsters are eyeing the Champions League T20 to impress upon the IPL teams to earn a lucrative contract.

New Delhi:

Almost half of the Victoria Bushranger players have already figured in the cash-awash Indian Premier League and the remaining youngsters are eyeing the Champions League T20 to impress upon the IPL teams to earn a lucrative contract.

Although the young Victoria cricketers unanimously said their first priority is to represent their state side, they didn't rule out playing in the IPL in offer comes.

Young left-arm orthodox spinner Jon Holland went to the extent of saying that it would be "crazy" on his part if he rejects such an opportunity.

"I don't know about others, personally I am focussed on playing for Victoria and performing for them. But if any IPL offers comes, I will surely consider it," the 22-year-old said here.

"IPL is a great tournament, I have watched it on TV and will love to be a part of it. It would be foolish and crazy of me if I don't accept any IPL offer," added Holland, who was a member of Australia's 30-man preliminary squad for the Champions Trophy.

Victoria Bushrangers' Champions League squad consists of as many as seven IPL players - Shane Harwood, skipper Cameron White, Andrew McDonald, Rob Quiney, Brad Hodge, David Hussey and Dirk Nannes.

Another youngster James Pattinson, who represented Australia A in last year's U-19 World Cup, said an IPL offer would be a icing on the cake in his short career.
