India to boycott SLPL again

E-mail Print
NEW DELHI: The Indian cricket board (BCCI) has once again 'rejected' Sri Lanka Cricket's (SLC) appeal to let Indian stars play in the inaugural Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL), tentatively scheduled to be held in August.

The BCCI feels that if it allows the players to play in the SLPL, it will have to let them appear in T20 leagues organized by other Test-playing nations. Besides, the Indian team has a cramped itinerary in the coming months - it is likely to travel to Sri Lanka for an ODI and T20 series in July. In August, India will host New Zealand for a two-Test series. "They (SLC) did approach us, but we may not be in a position to send our players," a BCCI official told TOI on Thursday.

SLC is hoping to get those Indian cricketers who won't make it to the national team. But as of now, the Indian board's reluctance has poured cold water on the plan. "BCCI is not convinced. But we are going ahead with the league this time," a SLC official said.

The SLPL was set to be launched last year itself but the non-availability of Indian players stymied the event. Then, the BCCI refused to play ball as it suspected former IPL czar Lalit Modi's hand behind the league. The cricket board mandarins believed that the event management company, which owned the commercial rights of the event, had something to do with Modi. This year, the BCCI hasn't taken much time in responding to SLC's overtures unlike last year which eventually led to cancellation of the event.

More than a month back, BCCI president N Srinivasan was quoted as saying that the board would examine a league's structure before giving Indian players the go-ahead. While he was unavailable for comment on Thursday, the board, it seems, is still not convinced. (Times of India)

If they can stop sending them, we too should do the same. As players they too think about it. Money is not the everything !!

If we sanction them players will scrapped the contracts like Malinga trying to do and play IPL. Who is going to pay you 1.8MN US$ (Rs.200Mn) for 6 weeks cricket!!!
But I like BCCI reject SLPL. SLPL is waste of money like Carlton Rugby...

We are sending our players, so they can earn US$, which will help foreign reserve. By banning players from playing in the IPL, we will be the losers. But by playing the IPL will giving money to us, then they will be the losers.

Because if they don't the players might quit SLC outright and stick to the IPL. SLC cannot compete with the financial firepower of the IPL.

Answer simple. India is alwasys putting SL down, sports, political, economical... in all areas with a plan. So When we can get money from India, we have to send players. Remember it is not small amount of foreign currency !!

Not sending players to IPL only results in SL not getting money. IPL will have no impact !! there are enough players to come. So be deplomatic. Dont trust India.

Its not skeletons in the cupboard, its when we you don't have money you have to worry like SLC. SLC's coffers are empty, so they need BCCI. On the other hand, BCCI has money, so they need SLC. Its all simple.

Anyway our cricketers also do not bother about the dignity of this country... what they want is money & women.

BCCI must be wanting SLC to make sure India wins the T20 WC in Sri Lanka later this year. BCCI goons dont take decisions without an ulterior motive.

Sending our players to IPL can't be stopped. bcz, we'll earn a lot of foreign exchange to SL & our players become more exporsure with world class players which is good for our team. BCCI decision is separate & SLC wouldn't beg them again I hope....

Now the SLC should reciprocate and show their discontent at the Indian attitude, by refusing to permit Sri Lankan cricketers take part in the IPL. Alas, money talks!

Exactly. Sri Lanka should not allow Sri Lankan cricketers to play in IPL. However, I don't think Sri Lankan players will be badly missed by the world.

Answer to Nishantha & Rukshan- since the money is big in IPL, if we try to stop players they will stop playing for country & play there. e.g. Malinga, ONLY SOLUTION: When SL players register for a club here, they should sign a 20 Year agreement that they will only play SLC approved matches.

we send our players because our players make enough money in 45 days that otherwise they can't make in a life time..
where as if indian players come here they will just make a few bucks by their standards hence its not worth the hasstle tussle..
simple as A B C

Try Two20 format in which two batsmen batting all 20 overs while the full opposite team fields. India may not like SLPL since it seems having the same format as IPL.
