Sky Cricket Podcast: Sam Billings and Tymal Mills on IPL and England
Last Updated: 22/05/17 3:22pm
England's Sam Billings and Tymal Mills join Rob Key fresh from their time in the IPL to talk about their memories of the tournament and look ahead to an important international summer.
On the latest Sky Cricket Podcast, Billings and Mills - two of eight Englishmen to feature in IPL 10 - talk about the greater impact of England players in the shorter formats of the game.
"I think the perception has changed," says Billings. "It has gone full circle after the World Cup a couple of years ago.
"We now play an attacking form of cricket with a group of players who play that way naturally."
Billings will be hoping that aggressive style of play can help England to success in the ICC Champions Trophy, starting on June 1, and in the preceding three-match ODI series against South Africa - which gets underway at Headingley on Wednesday, live on Sky Sports 2 from 1.30pm.
Also up for discussion...
- Billings says he sees his best position in the batting order at No 4
- Mills reflects on IPL bidding 'madness' and bowling the first ball of the tournament
- Training alongside the likes of Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli
- What's the atmosphere like at IPL games?
Watch South Africa's tour of England in full on Sky Sports - starting with the first ODI from 1.30pm this Wednesday on Sky Sports 2.
