“I am not sure if we will get them in this BPL, but hopefully we will get them in future. Will try for them in this BPL too.”
So far, three Indian cricketers — former IPL winner Manvinder Bisla, pacer Manpreet Gony and former Rajasthan Royals‘ Kumar Boresa — were named among 439 foreign players for a draft for the new season.
India usually does not allow any of its players to play in any Twenty20 league outside the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL).
Gony and former World Cup winner Yuvraj Singh were rare exceptions who played in the Global T20 Canada this year.
The draft will officially be unveiled later on Sunday. Other foreigners in the mix include 95 English, 89 Pakistani, and 44 Sri Lankan players.
The BPL — which was dogged by match-fixing scandals and delayed pay for some foreign players — has been renamed the Bangabandhu BPL and will kick off on December 11.
