The BCCI has barred active players from taking part in overseas T20 leagues and that is one of the reasons the 2011 World Cup hero considered retirement to make himself available for competitions around the world.
Brendon McCullum (also picked by the Nationals), Chris Gayle, Andre Russel (both Vancouver Knights), Sunil Narine, Fawad Ahmed (Montreal Tigers), Chris Lynn, Dwayne Bravo (Winnipeg Hawks), Kane Williamson, Faf du Plessis (Edmonton Royals) Shahid Afridi, Darren Sammy and Shakib al Hasan are some of the other high-profile stars to take part in this season’s GLT20.
The six teams will play a round-robin format and then playoffs, with a total of 22 matches to be played. This will be the second season of the league, with Vancouver Knights being the defending champions from last season.
Lalchand Rajput is another Indian name in the mix this season. He will be the coach of the Winnipeg franchise.
