There are very few Indian players that have played in overseas leagues. BCCI has the rule that active players can’t take part in overseas leagues.
However, if a player wants to play overseas leagues, he has to take a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the BCCI to play in foreign leagues, but they only get it after retiring from domestic and international cricket.
The Sydney Morning Herald claims that cricket fans could see India’s most significant, limited-overs cricketers in Australia’s Big Bash League.
According to a report, the great Indian left-hander batsman Yuvraj Singh, who retired from international cricket last year, wants to participate in the T20 event.
The BBL is yet to see the tremendous Indian left-hander batsman participation, and the franchise has an eagerness to sign Yuvraj. However, Yuvraj is free to play in any foreign league after he retired from international cricket and the IPL, and last year he had also received a NOC from the BCCI to play in Global T20 Canada.
The Yuvraj’s manager Jason Warne of W Sports & Media confirmed that Cricket Australia was trying to find a franchise in BBL that would be interested in the 6-six hitter 38-year-old former Indian cricketer.
On Monday, Shane Warne said that they are working with CA to find him a home.
However, in the same report, it has also been mentioned that interest in Yuvraj from BBL clubs is ‘modest.’ The Australian Cricketers’ Association president Shane Watson said that Indian players’ inclusion in the competition would be incredible.
Shane Watson also said that there are so many world-class T20 players in India that aren’t playing for India that could be potentially available to play in the Big Bash and other tournaments worldwide. Watson added that if that happened would make a massive difference.
Shane Warne also said that he had also wanted former India skipper MS Dhoni to take part in the ‘Hundred’ completion.
