BCCI should allow Indian cricketers to participate in foreign T20 leagues: Gilchrist

0

Gilchrist
urged
the
Board
of
Control
for
Cricket
(BCCI)
to
let
the
Indian
cricketers
play
in
overseas
T20
leagues
like
the
Big
Bash
League
in
Australia.
Currently,
the
BCCI
does
not
allow
the
Indian
cricketers
to
play
in
leagues
outside
the
country
to
maintain
exclusivisity
of
the
Indian
Premier
League
(IPL).

“It
will
be
wonderful
(if
the
Indian
players
are
allowed
to
play
in
overseas
T20
leagues),
I
personally
feel
that
it
won’t
diminish
the
IPL,
it
will
only
grow
them
as
a
brand.
If
they
(Indian
players)
can
play
in
Australia
or
South
Africa,”
PTI
quoted
Gilchrist.
“But
the
challenge
is
we
are
all
playing
our
domestic
seasons
at
the
same
time,
so
that
is
a
hard
thing,
isn’t
it?,”
added
the
wicketkeeping
legend.

Gilchrist’s
suggestion
came
after
a
day
he
questioned
the
growing
dominance
of
the
Indian
Premier
League
(IPL)
franchises
in
world
cricket.
However,
the
three-time
World
Cup
winner
maintained
he
was
not
against
the
most
world’s
most
popular
T20
league.

“I’m
not
criticising
the
IPL,
but
why
won’t
Indian
players
come
and
play
in
the
Big
Bash
league?
I’ve
never
had
an
open
and
honest
answer:
Why
are
some
leagues
accessing
every
player
in
the
world?
No
Indian
player
plays
in
any
other
T20
league.
I
am
not
saying
in
a
provocative
sense,
but
is
that
a
fair
question?”
he
asked.

“I
really
want
to
highlight
(that
the)
six
seasons
(I
played
in
the
IPL)
I
loved
it.
It
was
a
great
experience.
It
is
the
premier
T20
competition
in
the
world,
but
it
is
important
to
allow
other
boards
and
countries
to
prosper
as
well,”
he
added.

Need
to
be
patient
with
Rishabh
Pant

Gilchrist
once
again
praised
India’s
swashbuckling
wicket-keeper
batter
Rishabh
Pant
and
urged
the
Indian
board
to
be
patient
with
him
when
things
go
awry.
“He
(Pant)
is
one
of
the
most
exciting
cricketers
to
watch,
I
think
he
just
lights
up
a
stage,
and
makes
an
electric
atmosphere
when
he
is
playing,
that
is
wonderful,”
Gilchrist
said.

“The
BCCI,
the
management
and
the
selectors
will
just
need
to
be
patient
with
him.
A
few
innings
if
he
doesn’t
score
they
shouldn’t
be
too
harsh
on
him,
because
you
don’t
want
to
suppress
the
natural
flair,”
he
signed
off.
