Big Bash League: Retired Indian Cricketers who can take part in the BBL 2020-21

BBL 2020-21: 3 retired Indian players who can take part in the tournament

Here are the Top 3 players who can feature in BBL 2020-21: –

1. Pravin Tambe

Pravin Tambe is the archetype of ‘age is just a number’. He started playing in the IPL at the age of 41 and went on to become one of the most valuable spinners of the exhibition. The leg-spinner didn’t play a single first-class game before the IPL but the T20 fame awarded him a place in Mumbai’ Ranji side. Now, Tambe is the perfect example of a T20 specialist bowler.

2. Pragyan Ojha

Pragyan Ojha is one of the most unfortunate cricketers to play for India. He is known for showcasing the long lost art of bowling the flighted ‘slow left-arm orthodox style’. Ojha was a partner of Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin when India used to play at home in Test cricket. The left-armer played his last match in 2013, which was the last game of Sachin Tendulkar as well.

3. Irfan Pathan

The wonder boy of Indian cricket, Irfan Pathan, has seen most things in his career. His unplayable deliveries, big-hitting capability and the ability to swing the new ball made him a popular name. However, later, the all-rounder found himself stuck in the euphoria of what he was actually made for.


Yuvraj Singh too is keen on playing Big Bash League, as per reports.

Yuvraj was last seen playing in the Global T20 league held in Canada last year.

As per the BCCI rules, active players are forbidden from taking part in overseas T20 leagues without a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the board.

Australian Cricketers’ Association president Shane Watson has favored the participation of Indian players in the BBL, stating that it would bring a “massive difference” in the competition.


Raina could also welcome BBL offer!

Last month Raina had caught everyone by surprise when he suddenly returned from the UAE, where he had gone to play the 13th edition of the IPL.

He has been campaigning for Indian cricketers to play outside India.

“I hope the BCCI can get together with the ICC or with franchises and allow players who don’t have BCCI contracts to play in overseas leagues,” Raina

“If we can get three months of quality cricket, whether it’s the CPL or the Big Bash … it can help us stay ready (for a national call-up),” he said.

“Yusuf (Pathan), myself, Robin Uthappa – a lot of quality players (could) … go overseas and learn a lot. We aren’t in the BCCI contracts list, some of us don’t have IPL contracts,” he added.
