Australia’s T20 league Big Bash (BBL) is all set to start soon. Probably, Big Bash League will start in the second week of December.
BBL is planning to add overseas cricketer this year. All the franchises will be given a chance to include 3 overseas international players in their respective teams.
Big Bash League (BBL) franchises are very excited to add three Indian cricketers to their teams. These players are MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, and Yuvraj Singh.
Suresh Raina and Ms Dhoni have announced their retirement in August. Now they both are eligible to play in any other T20 league.
However, both Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni will have to issue a NOC from BCCI to participate in the tournament as they are integral players of the Indian cricket team.
Recently, Ms Dhoni is a captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK). On the other side, Suresh Raina was the part of CSK and left the team before starting the IPL due to family concerns.
In the Covid period, Raina had earlier suggested that BCCI should allow Indian players to play in other foreign leagues. This would have meant a great learning experience for them.
But according to the current rules, Indian players are not allowed to participate any other leagues. They can only participate if they have taken retirement from international cricket and national leagues.
On the other side, Yuvraj Singh is available for the selection because he has taken retirement in 2019. Yuvi also plays in Canada T20 league.
Now Yuvraj Singh has a great oppertunity to play in BBL for the upcoming season.
