New Delhi, May 2 (UNI) In a bid to promote the multi-million dollar Indian Premier League (IPL), the BCCI is using strong arm tactics against the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL), but South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis feels that all these leagues cropping up will ultimately benefit the game in the country.

Kallis, who is playing for Bangalore Royal Challengers, has said both the leagues provide a learning base for the domestic players who get a chance to share the dressing room with some of the international stars.

''Both IPL and ICL are beneficial for Indian cricket because it is the domestic players who will get to learn a lot from it. In both the tournaments they get to share the dressing room with some of the legendry players and I feel that it is a good learning experience,'' Kallis said here yesterday.

''Some guys are yet to play international cricket and at a young age they are playing with and against some of the top stars, had it been during my time, then I would have been immensely successful,'' he added.
