Hussain feels lure of money distracts England cricketers

London, Nov 25 (UNI) Former England skipper Nasser Hussain feels that the current English brigade were being distracted off the field by the lure of cash-rich tournaments like Stanford 20-20 series and the IPL.

Hussain further said the lure of money was giving a negative impact on their performances on field.

He said players were being sidetracked by the lure of the Stanford 20-20 series and Indian Premier League.

''In the past few months there has been too much distraction off the field about money. There is a 20-20 World Cup coming up and 2009 is an Ashes year and that is what the focus has to be on,'' the 40-year-old former Essex player was quoted as saying by 'The Sun'.
