Pragyan Ojha express his intention of playing in overseas T20 leagues. Ojha represented Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians in his nine-year long Indian Premier League career.

Most recently, veteran batsmen in Suresh Raina and Robin Uthappa had also opined on the prospect of being granted permission by the BCCI to play in overseas T20 leagues. “I’m trying to go and play in some leagues outside India. Definitely, I’m looking to do that, hopefully, things work out.

“It totally depends on if we can get permission from BCCI. I will talk to BCCI whenever the time comes. Right now nobody knows what’s happening. But I’ll definitely request BCCI to consider this, because I can go and play and enjoy myself,” Ojha said.

Veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh had to withdraw his name from ECB’s The Hundred last year for he still is an active player for IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings.

Former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh and fast bowler Manpreet Gony had represented Toronto Nationals in the second season of the Global T20 Canada last year but both did the same post announcing international retirement. With 33-year old Ojha also announcing his retirement, he should be able to play overseas without any objection.

Yuvraj, who announced international retirement in June 2019, went on to represent Maratha Arabians in the Abu Dhabi T10 League as well. It was reported that Yuvraj would be joined by Ambati Rayudu and Irfan Pathan during the T10 League but that didn’t happen.

Ojha Retirement

The 33 year old Indian left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket with immediate effect. Pyagyan Ojha made his International debut in 2008 in the Asia Cup against Bangladesh.

His T20I debut was also against the same opponent in the following year during the World T20 where he bagged four wickets which leads him to be named man of the match. He played only 18 ODIs and six T20Is in total and made his debut against Sri Lanka at home in 2009 and went on to pick more than 100 wickets.
