Cricket Australia displayed its displeasure against BCCI and Indian premier league. Â It is adopting arm twisting methods with its players by offering bonanza by offeringÂ long-term contracts to five of its most valuable players in exchange for not playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) from the next season.
Pursue Australian players not to play in Indian Premier League
Cricket AustraliaÂ offered three-year deals to star players â€“ Steven Smith, David Warner, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Strac, and Josh Hazlewood â€“ in exchange for giving up their spots in the flagship Indian cricket league.
Taking into account the recent clashes of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and the International Cricket Council (ICC), the move seems to be a clear case of backstabbing by the member boards.
Rumors are thatÂ Â Cricket Australiaâ€™s team performance manager Pat Howard met the top five cricketers and asked them to quit playing IPL.
At a time when India is getting cornered by the ICC, it has been making efforts to balance things with the international cricketing body, but it has to avoid a confrontational approach.
CA bitterness against BCCI over Indian Premier League
Cricket Australia’s anger towards BCCI over Indian Premier Legaue is well known to every one. Â Now it is embarking on carrot and stick policy to pursue its star players, many of whom are captains of IPL teams not to participate in the mega event.
It has to be seen how BCCI Â handles the situation and how to prevent any harm to its mega cricket league.
