Surrey seamer Jade Dernbach has hinted that he would relish the chance to play in the IPL if the opportunity came his way. The England international was answering questions from fans of his official Facebook page.

Dernbach has previously played for the Melbourne Stars in the 2011 Big Bash League and continues to represent Surrey in the Natwest T20 Blast, but the IPL holds a particular appeal for the bowler.

When asked if there was a T20 franchise that he'd like to play in, the 28-year-old said: “I’ve managed to experience a couple of franchises in my time. Australia was obviously a great experience for me.

"But I think the pinnacle of franchise cricket at the moment would obviously be the IPL. If I was to pick a particular franchise it would maybe be the Kolkata Knight Riders, I quite like their kit.

"Or the Delhi Daredevils to get to play with Kevin Pietersen, that might be an option.”

In this year’s IPL auction, Dernbach was one of seven English players who failed to sell, with Surrey teammate Pietersen the only player to be bought. But he is hopeful there will be another opportunity in the future.

Dernbach has made a name for himself as a specialist one-day bowler, representing England a combined 58 times between the two shorter versions of the game.
