Update BCCI should allow non-contracted players to play in foreign leagues: Raina

India batsman Suresh Raina has said that BCCI should allow Indian players who are without a central contract to partake in foreign T20 leagues. As of now, Indian players have not been issued NOCs to play in any of the overseas leagues, while players from most other cricketing countries have the option to ply their trade in multiple such tournaments, with, at best, a cap on the number of such participations.

During an Instagram Live chat with Irfan Pathan, Raina felt players like himself, Yusuf Pathan and Robin Uthappa - to name a few - who don't currently have a central contract with the Indian board should be allowed to feature in at least two foreign leagues. The CSK allrounder said such participation would allow the players to stay fit and hone their skills further. In early 2017, there were reports that Yusuf Pathan - who wasn't in the national squad reckoning - had initially been granted an NOC to play in the Hong Kong Blitz, only to be denied the chance later.
