Bravo, Gayle, Pollard and Sunil Narine permitted to play in IPL – BCCI
Where there have been sharp reactions throughout the country after the West Indian team betrayed the contractual agreement and quit the tour without playing the remaining matches, BCCI has decided to allow their players to play in the IPL. There were a lot of suggestions appearing in media to cut all cricketing ties with the West Indians, as BCCI has suffered huge losses. The millions of the fans of the game were shocked over the reluctant attitude shown by the West Indies cricket team and were hoping that a stringent action will be taken by the BCCI in order to curb such incidents damaging the growth and credibility of the game. But it appears that the BCCI has taken into consideration their commercial aspects as the franchises in India are a powerful lobby.
“There is no question of stopping them (West Indies players) from playing in the IPL. Our problem is with the West Indies Board and not their players. Whatever is happening is between their players and Board. The BCCI is not at all concerned with it. We have a contract with the WICB. Also, a lot of these West Indies players are bought by the franchises,” Sanjay Patel said.
Patel informed that the BCCI has called an urgent Working Committee meeting in Hyderabad on October 21 to discuss the matter. “Members will discuss what sort of a relationship to have with the West Indies board henceforth, and whether we should play with them in future will also be discussed,” said Patel.
