Indian cricketers can play T20 leagues

According to the recent developments in cricket, the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to allow Indian cricketers to take part in the foreign T20 leagues. The final decision will be made in BCCI’s Annual General Meeting, due to take place in September.

Cricketers from all over the world enjoy taking part in several T20 leagues and franchise-based competitions across the world. However, despite players’ hunger to enjoy the gatherings in The Hundred, Caribbean Premier League, Big Bash League, and others, the BCCI does not allow NOC to Indian cricketers to participate in any of them.

As of now, it has been heard the BCCI is reviewing its decision, the final call on which will be made in the upcoming AGM. People wonder why the board let its players behind with the development of modern-day cricket through leagues. It is because the board wants a player to focus on domestic cricket rather than concentrating on foreign T20 leagues.

It must be noted the decision has been reported in the enlightenment of the fact that six IPL teams bought franchises in Cricket South Africa’s newly launched T20 league. The IPL franchises are pressurizing the BCCI to let the players participate in the inaugural edition of the tournament.

One of the BCCI officials was quoted as saying,

“Few IPL teams with a presence in leagues abroad have requested the BCCI to allow Indian players. But we have to discuss this at the AGM before coming to any conclusion. It is a contentious issue as IPL is successful because of the exclusivity it provides. Definitely, we won’t lose that. As for Indian players playing abroad, it may happen due to the growing number of franchise leagues.”

It is pertinent to mention here that BCCI’s centrally contracted players like Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, etc will not be allowed to take part in any of the foreign T20 leagues.
