No Indian flavour in Big Bash League

Melbourne: Australian cricketers may be participating in the IPL but Indian players would not get the BCCI's permission to compete in the Twenty20 Big Bash League Down Under later this year because of domestic tournaments.

BCCI Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty said the Board would not free the players of their domestic season commitments which run from October to March. The Big Bash is scheduled from mid-December until late January. “Last year some teams wanted Indian players and they were not available because of domestic tournament,” he told The Age.

There are a good number of Australians, including retired champions Shane Warne and Adam Gilchrist, playing in the Indian Premier League right now. — PTI
