Although it has not been officially confirmed yet, but given the contents of a story running in the Hindu, henceforth the star attraction and popular crowd pullers like Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Pollard and Dwayne Bravo might not be allowed to play in IPL.

Anurag Thakur, joint Secy. of BCCI and President of HPCA, has already asked BCCI to take stern action for sudden pullout carried out by West Indian cricketers for their own vested interest.

According to the story, a source said, “The matter is likely to be raised at IPL governing council meeting where the issue will come up for serious discussions. Some of the members of board’s top brass want to ban the Windies players for atleast one season. For the likes of Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, IPL has been a primary source of income and the perks that they have got in India for their star status. The love that Indian public bestowed on them is unimaginable and this is pure backstabbing by their players. What BCCI officials are finding it difficult to digest is that even after their assurances to Sanjay Patel, who went to Kochi to persuade them, things have come to such a pass. How could they backtrack on their promise? This is a matter of principles. If they can give commercial considerations priority then why won’t they be penalised for their uncompromising attitude.”

Dwayne Bravo and Dwayne Smith are key players of Chennai while Kieron Pollard is a critical player for Mumbai.
