Plunkett targets T20 leagues
Liam Plunkett wants to experience some Twenty20 leagues around the world but still wants to play for England.
The 32-year-old has been in the England one-day and T20 set-up for some time and is due to play against West Indies in upcoming white-ball games.
The former Durham fast bowler is no longer part of the Test squad, having played 13 five-day matches in a career that was halted by injuries, but he continues to play first-class cricket for Yorkshire.
He is yet to feature in either the Big Bash or the IPL but while not motivated by the large sums of cash on offer, he now fancies a shot at cricket overseas.
"Obviously I want to play as long as I can for England," he said. "But the opportunities that are around the world now in terms of T20s, you want to stick around.
"I’ve never been driven by money but I’d be stupid not to explore that opportunity and play in those competitions around the world. It would improve my cricket, too.
"The better you perform for England and Yorkshire the more opportunities that will be given to you because people can see you’re performing."
