CL tough on players but wonderful: Vaughan

London: Former England captain Michael Vaughan has said that the cash-rich Twenty20 competitions like the Indian Premier League and the Champions League give a tough time to international players, however he acknowledges that its all part of a player’s life.

He said that the touring commitments placed on top international players are intense, but when a player has passion and love for the game, he would enjoy the experience.

"Touring is part of a cricketer's life and playing cricket is a wonderful experience. I was fortunate enough to do it and experience that for 10 years," The Telegraph quoted Vaughan, as saying.

"Now, with the Champions League and the IPL, players will probably have to travel more rather than less. It is tough at times, but it is also a wonderful living," he added.
