The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) hosts the world’s largest T20 league – the Indian Premier League (IPL). But the Indian Board does not allow its players to play in global T20 leagues. Only an Indian player who is retired or has nothing to do with Indian cricket can take NOC from the BCCI to play in foreign T20 leagues. Meanwhile, former India wicketkeeper-batsman Saba Kareem has expressed his opinion that BCCI will not allow its players to participate in foreign T20 leagues. Saba Kareem believes this has helped India retain a good number of multi-format players.

In a conversation with YouTube channel ‘IVM Podcast’, Saba Kareem said, “West Indies players are allowed to participate in the global T20 league. Most of the countries allow it but India will not allow it. This means that players who are under-19, Ranji Trophy or under-23 must stay in India and play cricket.

He said, ‘Looking at domestic cricket tournaments organized in India, we have multiple formats at the Under-23 and Under-19 level, except for the Ranji Trophy. So, we are really grooming the multi-format players through these tournaments as these players get different kinds of cricket experience. If the BCCI allows our senior and junior players to go out and participate in the global T20 league, there are very few cricketers left to play domestic cricket. In that case, a huge void is created in our cricket, which is similar to other countries.
