March 29,2022 (New Delhi): In the latest IPL GC meeting, the BCCI is considering to take strict action against foreign stars who opt out of the IPL without adequate reason. According to sources, some franchises have raised concerns regarding the growing trend of players pulling out having secured a small fee at the auction.
“The GC has a commitment towards the franchises who are the important stakeholders of the league. They bid for a player after a lot of planning. Their calculations go haywire if a player pulls out, that too for flimsy reasons,” said a GC member told Cricbuzz website. “There will not be a sweeping policy that everyone who has pulled out of the IPL will be prevented for a certain number of years. It will be on a case-by-case basis and some research will be done before action is initiated. What if the reason is genuine,” a source added
Few circumstances like injury and international commitments are already taken as reason and exceptions for pulling out from league. But the recent pull out of Jason Roy and Alex Hales has left IPL fans disappointment . In his recent interview Jason said “I feel it is only right that I spend some quality time with my family. As well as spending time on myself and my game over the next couple of months, leading into a very busy year,” before pulling out of the Gujarat Titans team. He was bought for his base price of INR 2 crore. Hales, who was bought for his base price of INR 1.5 crore by Kolkata Knight Riders, said he needed time to recharge himself and also cited bubble fatigue.
