Pravin Tambe wants to play CPL, BCCI is being hindered
Pravin Tambe, 48, wants to play Cpl this year. The BCCI has clearly said that Tambe will have to retire from cricket to play CPL
If you are a fan of cricket, then you must surely know about Pravin Tambe. This 48-year-old cricketer is desperate to show his game on the field even at this age. Pravin played for the Rajasthan Royals in the 2013 edition of the IPL. Pravin Tambe was 41 years old at that time. Even after being so old, Pravin Tambe had surprised everyone with his sport and fitness.
Pravin Tambe is now 48 years old. Soon he will turn 49. But even increasing age is not able to reduce the passion for the game of Pravin Tambe. Pravin Tambe wants to play cpl. He sent his name in the draft for auction. Shockingly, Trinbago Knight Riders bought him, but now the BCCI has come ahead of his dream of playing.
Now you know that in recent years many Indian players have played in foreign leagues, but the Caribbean League is not a Veteran League but it is a professional cricket competition. Although Pravin Tambe was bought by KKR in an auction held in December last year, but he was disqualified by the BCCI. The reason was that Tambe took part in T20 cricket in Abu Dhabi without permission from BCCI.
But now a new problem has come in front of the Pravin Tambe. The BCCI has placed a new condition in front of Tambe. The board has made it clear that if Tambe wants to play in a foreign league, he has to declare his retirement from cricket. Yuvraj, Sehwag and many other players had announced their retirement earlier to play in foreign leagues.
The BCCI does not allow Indian players to play in foreign leagues. This is the reason why no Indian player is seen playing in big leagues like CPL and Big Bash. Big players like Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag have demanded permission to play in foreign leagues. They believe that Indian players should also be allowed to play in such leagues.
A board official said that Tambe is still an active player in domestic cricket. Overall, the IPL Governing Council will also have to take a decision in their case as the Tambe has already broken the board rules to play in the Abu Dhabi League. Tambe came into the limelight when he made his IPL debut in 2013 at the age of 41. This leg-spinner has taken 28 wickets in 33 IPL matches.
