    Vinod Rai suggests BCCI could allow Indian players' participation in foreign T20 leagues

    Chairman of the Committee of Administrators, Vinod Rai has confirmed that the CoA is open to examining the possibility of allowing Indian players to play in the foreign T20 Leagues. Currently, the BCCI has a very strong rule and doesnít allow any players to take part in foreign leagues.

    Players from all over the world always show their eagerness to play in the lucrative Indian Premier League. However, the BCCI doesn't allow its own players to participate in the foreign leagues. But in the aftermath of the newly established Global T20 League, Cricket South Africa is hoping to get some Indian players on board and they have spoken openly about it. Now, Vinod Rai revealed that they are even thinking about the proposal and the CoA are open to have a discussion on this matter.

    "I am open to examining such a proposal," Rai said as quoted by TOI. Acting BCCI president CK Khanna also showed his interest and said that the issue could be discussed at an appropriate stage.

    Like IPLís popularity, other countries also want attention for their leagues and for that they want the involvement of Indian star players. But, there are so many examples in past when the BCCI didnít give approval to the Indian players to play in the foreign T20 leagues. Recently, Ajay Sethi, the owner of Port Elizabeth franchise, revealed that Suresh Raina wanted to be associated with the franchise in the upcoming T20 league in South Africa.

    "India should allow non-contracted players to play in other leagues as they will add huge value to the game. Suresh Raina was very keen to work with our team as an ambassador. Raina is a great player and should be given a chance to play outside. There are many like him and they make some money, family holiday and cricket connect," Sethi said.

    The main fear of the BCCI is that allowing the cricketers to play outside will hamper domestic events. An unnamed board official says that they donít want a situation like West Indies in India, where most of the top cricketers are preferring T20 cricket over the national team. If a cricketer wants to participate in the foreign leagues then he should announce his retirement.

    In Indian cricket, there are so many players who are talented but don't get that much chance to showcase their exploits. Foreign franchises believe that those cricketers can play in their tournaments which will help them get international exposure and experience.

    "We would, of course, welcome Indian players with open arms. Our players and fans would welcome their participation," Haroon Lorgat, Cricket South Africa CEO, said.

    Similarly, IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders' CEO, Venky Mysore, who was instrumental in taking brand KKR to away shores by acquiring two franchises in Windies and South Africa, supported them who want to play in away T20 leagues.

    "I am stating the obvious but Indian players will be considered as foreigners in any league outside India, so if they are allowed to play, at best you might see 6-8 players being selected in those foreign leagues. In my view, young emerging players who may not be getting opportunities in IPL can be considered first with a view to providing them exposure and opportunity. That will, in turn, benefit them & Indian cricket," Mysore said.

    Will be a pointless exercise. May increase the profits for other leagues but it will harm the popularity of the IPL. As far as I know, Indians will never play in PSL and vice versa. So, not happening!

    EVERY other country allows their plyers to participate in foreign T20 leagues - what makes you think India's domestic structure will be the only entity to be impacted?

    County Cricket, Sheffield Shield etc. seem to be doing fine.

    County and Sheffield shield do not run during IPL. County maybe, but not many English players in IPL anyways.

    On the other hand, Indias domestic season runs during Cpl/Bbl. I dont see Indians playing Psl ever and vice versa.

    It just few franchise owners making noise about Indian players because they want to tap into Indian market.

    Indian players play in Dhaka premier league. Tbh it's 50 over cricket and a very competitive league. Indians play county here and there.

    But whenever there is no domestic competition in India, the BCCI should let it's fringe players play abroad.

    Say for example someone like GG would easily earn big bucks in BPL. And he finally gets to play in a different environment to the usual IPL, just for the sake of change. Or perhaps a short stint at SA.

    These leagues allow these cricketers to earn extra and also travel around the world and meet people. I am sure Indian cricketers would love that.

    Perhaps contracted players should not be given NOCs but I see no harm in letting the others have a go in other leagues. No it will not dilute the IPL. IPL will be popular regardless of whether Unmukt Chand, Tiwary, Yusuf Pathan, Gambhir play in another league.

    While the Indian players are financially well off due to IPL, the players love travelling, playing in a different environment, etc. Same time they will earn some extra cash.

    No other country pays the home board for allowing their players to take part in T20, like BCCI paying other boards for IPL. If they're paying BCCI for allowing Indian players in their T20 league, then that's fine otherwise why should BCCI bother?

    Sheffield shield is over by the time psl ipl cpl starts.So does the SA and NZ domestic season.

    County teams didnot allow players in IPL for years before it became inevitable due to financial reasons.

    Indian domestic season starts from october and goes till may june.So players cant be released for other leagues and let Indian cricket suffer.

    Excess of 1 million USD atleast per season.

    Do you think it would hurt players to say play in the CPL/BPL/BBL? Where they would only get a fraction of the money (15-20%) but don't you think it's a different experience to say go to the Carribean and enjoy the cricket there?

    What's Better - playing IPL only. Earning 1.5 million USD. Playing only 16 odd high profile matches. Playing in only one country

    Or

    Playing IPL and few other leagues. Earning around 2 million USD. Playing 30+ televised matches. Traveling around the world and getting to play in different environments and playing with different group of players.

    I can't see why the latter isn't what GG or YP would desire if they had the option. What it also does it that they are playing T20 all year round so are always prepared when IPL begins.

    They can retire and snap connections with bcci and play any league.Remember that bcci will be paying these players a pension pay for their medicals life long.So the players have the option of forgoing all that and earn as much as they can fron these leagues.

    These players are taken care of very well.And in return they wont dilute the IPL brand and wont forsaje Indian domestic cricketm

    You don't get my point.

    I am Saying Should BCCI give permission to these players to represent foreign domestic sides without any repurcussions.

    The fact that letting Indian players like GG and YP play abroad will dilute IPL brand is a myth. People will flock in to watch IPL regardless of whether they can watch GG or co here and there.

    The good that comes out is that when India has no domestic cricket going on some players like YP can go for a short stint in say SA T20. Indian players play DPL when it's off season as far domestic cricket in India is concerned.

    Finance is not an issue here. The dream to play around the world is what matters here.

    It makes sense if BCCI doesnt want its players to play abroad

    Lets say Kohli, Dhoni and other top 506 Indian players play PSL. I guarantee that bring hundreds of millions extra eye balls.

    Though I do think fringe players or those on their last legs and just doing ipl should be allowed

    Bcci operates under poor business ethics.

    BCCI is the biggest hypocrite ever. If the australian or english board did somwthing like this that not allowing their players in foreign leagues, indians would had cried of racism.

    But because they do it its ok.

    Let's say that they did. I would say that the Aus, English players will be the first ones to protest.

    Though it would be good to see Indian players in other leagues, I do understand the brand protection of the BCCI. I am sure the other boards are also just as free to protect their brands. It's a free world (mostly) after all.

    This.

    Based on reports that new MOU signed between players and CA, will allow players to ply their trade in IPL, meaning no international schedule during IPL.

    English board didnt allow their players for early days of IPL. That hardly mattered to IPL and fans, as it was still hugely successful. Only recently, Strauss had allowed English players to play Ipl.

    Less we talk about Pakistan/PCB better. Pakistani players arent featured in IPL since 2009, and dont think they will be included anytime soon.

    Tbh, Brand protection is very important and BCCI has every right to do.

    Im sure he meant 'top 5 current Indian players' or in other words well known Indian players.

    foregin leagues are better off without fringe Indian players. First, they would be either low quality youngster or over the age senior who no longer in contention for Indian team. Instead of recruiting such players and dilute the quality of leagues, they should recruit quality players from other nations. There is noway Indian fans would all of a sudden glue to TV if some fringe Indian players play the foreign leagues.

    It would be different story if it was Kohli/Sharma/KL Rahul, but im sure Bcci would never release its contracted players for leagues.
    So, foreign league should stop dreaming about tapping into Indian market, because an average Indian do not give a flying toss about foreign leagues.

    BPL runs during India's domestic season. So allowing couple would create a situation where more players would demand NOC and thus causing a rift among players. This is what BCCI meant that they want to prevent Windies like situation where players prefer league over domestic.
    If GG and Pathan bros for that matter anyone want to pursue league cricket, then they just have to officially retire.
    You also gotta understand even Ranji players are handsomely paid now a days. So, they cant complain about finance plus all the benefits they get (medical, pension etc) is more than satisfactory.
    The reason why many players chose IPL over their domestic is because they are paid close to million dollars or in some case multi million dollars. An average South African will take around 10 years to earn a million dollars from CSA whereas he can even more in just one season(6-7 weeks) in IPL.

    If GG and Pathan bros for that matter anyone want to pursue league cricket, then they just have to officially retire.

    Forget BPL. What about other leagues? CPL for example runs during wet season in BD and India

    I personally wouldnt mind allowing them, however think this way, allowing Indian players for Cpl and stopping them from participating in other leagues would cause rift among boards. Most cricket boards want Indian players in their league, and allowing for one league and not for others would sour the relationship.

    I honestly do not know the exact reason ( apart from diluting brand of ipl) why Indian players do not play any leagues, we can all argue as we like but until we get clear answers from BCCI its all speculations.

    I think BCCI will soon let some players participate in foreign league but only the likes of GG or Yousuf whose careers are already over. Infact they can decide to skip Indian domestic tournaments if they want. However the top Indian players and those who are prospective players may not be allowed.

    Dont think BCCI will give them an option to skip domestic for foreign leagues. Like i said, for that they need to officially retire. Other than that, its all mere speculations

    Yuvraj Singh's Case An Aberration, No NOCs For Indians To Play T20 Leagues

    The Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) decision to hand Yuvraj Singh a No-Objection Certificate to participate in the Global T20 League being held in Canada came as a huge relief for many former Indian players who have not been in the scheme of things when it comes to international cricket and have been contemplating retirement. But it has now come to the fore that the Committee of Administrators' (CoA) decision to hand Yuvraj the NOC was a one-off.

    Speaking to IANS, a CoA member confirmed the same "What happened in Yuvraj's case was a one-off and we aren't looking at handing out any NOCs at present for playing in foreign leagues. We discussed the matter, but felt no action is required to be taken on the issue."

    The move has surprised BCCI officials who believe that there should be a sense of consistency and there cannot be a change in approach after handing one player the NOC.

    "There is something called consistency, but clearly not under the current administration in the board. Arbitrary decision making isn't the way when it comes to players and their careers. There might be quite a few former players who are no longer part of the scheme of things when it comes to the Indian team who would have thought of retiring and playing in T20 leagues. This sudden U-turn is unfair on them," the official told IANS.

    Another official said that if one person has retired from the game he could not have participated in competitive cricket anywhere as retirement is not location specific.

    "To be honest, you don't retire geographically. You either retire or you don't. If some country is permitting retired players to play in T20 leagues, that is an ICC issue. The ICC wishes to be ignorant on such issues. But as far as this U-turn is concerned, it is wrong," the official rued.

    For the record, the BCCI was never too fond of the idea of handing retired players NOCs to play in T20 leagues outside India, but an exception was made by the CoA for Yuvraj. Why the exception was made definitely needs to be inquired.
