As franchise leagues take the world by storm, many have suggested that Indians participate in them to get accustomed to different conditions in a bid to succeed in the ICC mega-events.

Shukla when asked if the Indians will be allowed to play in the T20 franchise leagues in the future clearly stated that there is no chance of this happening in the future and the players are well aware of this. Moreover, he added that the Indian Premier League (IPL) is already the biggest T20 league of them all and there is no need for them to play anywhere else.
“We (BCCI) do not supply our players to any other overseas cricket league. We have a clear policy on this. Our Indian Premier League is itself a huge league and we cannot allow any of our players to attach itself to a foreign league in any way,” Shukla said as quoted by ANI.
