Zaheer Khan And Ravi Shastri Came In Support Of Rahul Dravid Over Playing Overseas League Cricket

    After the humiliating loss in the all-important clash against England in T20 World Cup 2022. Every cricketing expert like; Wasim Akram, Anil Kumble, Stephen Fleming, and Tom Moddy suggesting BCCI to allow Indian players to play in other countries’ franchise league matches.

    Even after the loss, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid explained that Indian players should play the Big Bash leagues and this suggestion is getting support from former Indian cricketers Zaheer Khan and Ravi Shastri.

    Zaheer Kahn, who have been the part of the Mumbai Indians and he is currently the global head of the Mumbai Indians. He described that players should play in other countries league to learn new things. And you have plenty of players and they can compete at any level.

    “I feel there are a lot of processes in place. It’s not about playing only franchise cricket, it’s about going to different countries to learn things. That is something which is important, and you’ve seen with BCCI, with their shadow tours, I think those processes are well in place. I don’t see any other reason right now for players to go and play in a particular tournament. What you have domestically right now is also a robust structure. So why depend on others? We have more than enough means for producing good players. And you look at our bench strength as well, you can virtually play three line-ups, and they will be able to compete at any level” said Zaheer Khan.

    Former head coach Ravi Shastri spoke on this point as similar to Zaheer. He described that BCCI can make two strong side at a time.

    “There is enough domestic cricket for all these players to get absorbed in the system and get an opportunity. Plus, you get these India A tours, you get a lot of these other tours, where at one given time you might have two Indian teams playing in the future, where the opportunity will come for the other lot to go somewhere else whilst India is in another country – to go play and see what you know they can do. So there’s no need to play in overseas leagues, they’re absolutely fine playing IPL cricket and focusing on domestic cricket. We need them to play domestic cricket in India as well” said Ravi
