The report claims that BCCI’s decision to let Indian cricketers take part in the 100-ball tournament would pave way for negotiations around an IPL franchise in Britain
The Hush Post: MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and other top cricketers from India are likely to feature in new 100-ball league. These top Indian cricketers may get the permission from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to participate in a 100 ball-cricket tournament, scheduled to be held in England in 2020.
As per a report in the dailymail.co.uk, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which doesn’t allow its players to play in overseas T20 tournaments to protect their market-leading Indian Premier League, are understood to be considering making an exception for the Hundred because it is played over 100 balls compared to 120.
The Daily Mail report claims that the BCCI’s decision to let Indian cricket players take part in the 100-ball tournament would pave the way for negotiations around an IPL franchise in London.
“Having Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma and other top Indians playing would be an immense boost for the Hundred in its inaugural year, especially when England’s Test players will not be involved,” the report mentioned.
“It would also be a helpful bargaining chip for future negotiations around an IPL franchise in London,” it was reported.
Earlier, the BCCI had given its approval to the women cricketers for participating in the Kia Super League T20, starting in England this summer, the report said.
