Indian Premier League has always been an iconic game viewed by infinite cricket fans. It’s just not a tournament but a union of fans and cricket players despite being from a totally different country, color, culture, and religion. It’s more like a World Anthem.
And, this is why BCCI has always been stringent to the defaulters who harm the standards of IPL and hurt the sentiments of fans. Visit Here For IPL 2020 Latest News.
Here are 4 big players loved by the global public but are banned in the 13th edition of IPL by BCCI.
Pravin Tambe who was Kolkata Knight Riders’ trump card will be not playing IPL 2020. This is due to his participation in the recent edition of the T10 League. The 48-year old cricket player holds the record of being the oldest auction bought IPL player. He has been barred from competing in IPL 2020 as he failed to meet the standards set by BCCI.
In an interview of IANS, A BCCI official said, “BCCI rules strictly say that an Indian player has to be exclusively playing in the IPL or he has to stay away from the cash-rich league and participate in other leagues across the globe. To have sent in his name for the T10 draft and now to also be a part of the IPL is clearly against the BCCI protocol. So, he can’t play.”
This Kolkata Knight Riders-bound uncapped off-spinner was bought at his base price of Rs 20 lakh from the IPL auction. He was reported for a suspect action during the Big Bash League. To this, BCCI has taken strict actions and banned the iconic player from bowling for three months.
However, this doesn’t mean that Chris Green will not play any other match including IPL 2020; he is banned from bowling until declared not guilty by the higher authorities.
Shivam Mavi and Nitish Rana
Shockingly, the other two players are Nitish Rana and Shivam Mavi of KKR. Looks like KKR has been surrounded by black clouds; along with Pravin Tamble and Chris Green, these two might also be banned by BCCI to play this year’s IPL.
Age fudging has always been the most concerned factor for BCCI. There have been many times when cricket players use fraudulent ways to reduce their age to play in age-group cricket to reap undue advantages. Shahid Afridi is one such example of age fudging. In his book, he mentioned that he was 21 and not 16 when he scored the 37-ball century in 1996.
Despite, age-fudging in group-age games is a menace and BCCI has vigilant supervision, an instance was seen in Delhi cricket when these two young players of KKR came under investigation. They haven’t been proved guilty yet but there are good chances that KKR might lose these two.
