According to reports in <em>AFP</em>, Willey called decision to play IPL was a "no-brainer" even if it put his county contract with Yorkshire at risk. Willey missed several weeks of Yorkshire's county campaign and even said was threatened about losing his contract. It was a move that angered the Headingley hierarchy, though Willey has since signed a new deal. <p></p> <p></p>Willey, asked if it had been a difficult decision replied: "It was a no-brainer. You don't get the chance to go and play in the biggest Twenty20 competition in the world every day. I was threatened with them ripping my contract up which wasn't great -- but that has all been resolved now." <p></p> <p></p>Willey, however got to play only three matches in the star studded CSK team said playing in the IPL had seen him learn "a lot from a tactical, mental and skill point of view. I found my love for the game again while I was out there, and I really do think I've become a student of the game again ... I've signed another year at Yorkshire which is going through today and I still want to play all formats."
