New Delhi: The Indian cricket board’s technical panel has proposed barring foreign players from domestic tournaments, except from the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL).
The technical committee, headed by former test skipper Sunil Gavaskar, recommended that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) overturn its recent policy that permitted state teams to register and field one foreigner in domestic events.
The technical committee’s proposals will be considered by the BCCI working committee.
Cricket board’s spokesman Devendra Prabhudesai told ‘AP’ that this decision will not apply to the IPL, a domestic Twenty20 competition that attracts top players from around the world.
