Hyderabad, April 28: The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) is planning to conduct the T20 League in Sharjah from October 5 to 24. The ACB has asked BCCI to allow Indian cricketers to play in the tournament. The BCCI has turned down this request.
The BCCI has told ACB that its players do not play in any other T20 league than IPL. If you are allowed to play in your league ... other countries will also ask ... that's why we are not allowing any single player.
India has always lent a helping hand to its friend Afghanistan and will continue to do so. The ACB officials have not so far come to us on the participation of our players in their league. Honestly speaking, it will be tough to allow the players at this stage. If we allow one, we have to give clearance to everyone," a senior BCCI official told to media.
