Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has proposed an intriguing change that he needs in the IPL playing XI format if the cash-rich league played with 10 teams in the upcoming seasons.
Sanjay Manjrekar Proposed a change in IPL
Manjrekar feels there are a lot of Indian players and henceforth needs five foreign players in the playing XI of each team on the grounds that numerous quality players are sidelined all through the season.
He felt regardless of whether five foreign players include in the playing XI, there will in any case be sufficient freedoms for Indian players to thrive.
“If IPL is going with 10 teams then you got to have five foreign players per side. Despite that, you will have 10 Indian players playing in the XI. They are a lot of Indian players,” he said on ESPNCricinfo.
“When there was no IPL, T20, or 50-over cricket, only 13-14 players in the 70s or 80s played at the highest level and that’s where you got the cream of Indian players playing,” Manjrekar added.
“You already have plenty of Indian players and it is a shame to see some quality foreign players sitting out only because they can’t play more than four. So even if we go five foreign players, plenty of Indian players will get the opportunity,” he further said.
