Saudi Arabia League: What is the truth about the world’s most expensive T20 league and will Rohit-Virat also be a part of it?

World’s Richest T20 League: An Australian newspaper had revealed that the government of Saudi Arabia wants to set-up the world’s most expensive T20 league and for this it is in touch with the IPL franchise and BCCI. . It was also revealed in the report that the Saudi government can also talk to the BCCI to include Indian players in this league. Now a new update has come in this matter.

In a conversation with Cricbuzz, a BCCI source has said, ‘There is no question of releasing Indian players. In fact the premise of this question is wrong. We have a policy and we will stick to it. The source associated with the BCCI has also said that at present no proposal of such a league has come to the BCCI. Some IPL franchises have also ruled out talks with the Saudi government on such a league.

Means at the moment, there is no solid evidence of this league actually taking shape. And even if such a league starts, there will be little chance of any Indian cricketer including Virat and Rohit taking part in it.

What did the report say?
A report in ‘The Age’ revealed that Saudi Arabian government representatives had asked IPL franchise owners to set up a T20 franchise league in the Gulf region. The proposal for the scheme related to up-gradation has been sent. The Saudi government wants to make this league the most expensive T20 league in the world. It was also said in the report that for the last one year, the Saudi government is working on this plan and it would like to include Indian cricketers for the success of this expensive league. For this, it can recommend changes in its rules to BCCI.

What do BCCI rules say?
According to BCCI rules, no Indian cricketer can be a part of any other franchise cricket league running abroad other than IPL. If any Indian cricketer has to be a part of such foreign league, then he has to end all his contracts with BCCI. Means that player will not be able to participate in IPL and other domestic tournaments from Team India.
