Nah, Samit Patel just knows where the money is. Contrary to popular belief, it's not in the IPL.

The only players that get huge IPL salaries are Indian national players and star batsmen like Gayle.

Mediocre spinning allrounders are ten a penny and an IPL side isn't going to spill out its cash and overseas places on them, especially not ones from England that won't sell t-shirts.

If Patel could get a contract, he wouldn't make much more from the IPL than from playing for Notts. What would bring in the benjamins is an England central contract, so that's what he's after.
