He might have missed an opportunity to play for Kolkata Knight RIders in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 but 48-year-old Pravin Tambe is all set to be part of the 2-time champions' set-up. KKR CEO Venky Mysore has confirmed Tambe will join the franchise in the UAE to 'help' the team prepare for the campaign.

Pravin Tambe became the oldest player to be picked up by a franchise at the IPL 2020 auction last year. KKR bought the veteran spinner for Rs 20 Lakh. However, he was barred from playing the IPL by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Tambe was pulled up by the Indian cricket board for featuring in a franchise-based cricket league overseas. According to the BCCI rules, only retired players can feature in overseas leagues and that Tambe, according to the board, had breached this policy.

However, Tambe went ahead and played for Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League, becoming the 1st Indian player to feature in the T20 league. Tambe was part of the TKR side which won all 12 matches en route to their 4th title earlier this month.
