NEWS: BCCI Claim ECB Did Not Invite Indians To Super League

UPDATE: See here for the ECB’s response.

This week’s announcement of the overseas stars for the Kia Super League has become overshadowed in the eyes of some Indian fans by an apparent row between the ECB and the BCCI over why no Indian players are involved.

The overseas contingent includes 7 Australians, 4 New Zealanders, 4 South Africans and 2 West Indians… but no Indians – much to the dissapointment of Indian fans:

The ECB had previously claimed to have contacted all the other boards offering their players the chance to participate.

But a spokesperson for the BCCI has appeared to contradict this, as Snehal Pradhan writes in India’s Firstpost:

“A senior BCCI official told Firstpost that they had not received any such communication from the ECB and that they could only consider allowing Indian players after they did.”

  1. The tweet you quote isn’t just about Indian players – there are Pakistani and Bangladeshi players mentioned. While it’s disappointing to see no Indian players, India is not the only team in the region with quality players!
