Sidelined Suresh Raina and former all-rounder Irfan Pathan on Saturday mentioned that BCCI ought to enable these Indian gamers to compete in international T20 leagues who aren’t in rivalry for nationwide staff.
“I wish BCCI plans something with ICC or the franchises that Indian players get to play foreign leagues. At least allow us to play in two different foreign leagues,” Raina mentioned throughout an Instagram Live session.
“If we play quality cricket in terms of foreign leagues, then it would be good for us. All international players make a comeback by playing in all those leagues.”
Irfan, who had initiated the session, additionally seconded the opinion, saying gamers who aren’t within the reckoning ought to no less than be allowed to compete in international T20 leagues.
“There is a different mindset in different countries. Michael Hussey made his debut at the age of 29 for Australia, an Indian player can never make his debut at the age of 30. I think as long as you are fit, you should be available to play for your country,” mentioned Irfan, who had introduced his retirement from all types of cricket in January this yr.
“I would suggest that all those players who are 30 years old and they are not on your radar to play international matches, you should allow them to play in foreign leagues.”
The BCCI doesn’t enable Indian gamers to play in abroad leagues except they’ve formally introduced their retirement.
Last yr, veteran all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was handed a No-Objection Certificate to take part within the Global T20 Canada by BCCI, making him the one Indian cricketer to play in a international league.
