Indian skipper Virat Kohli is rated among the best cricketers of the current generations, if not the very best. The aggressive batsman is the hottest property in world cricket right now and franchise owners all over the world are willing to spend blindly to rope the talent. While there is no doubt over the fact that Virat Kohli will be an asset for any team he plays for, it is known that the BCCI does not allow Indian players to play in other T20 leagues barring the board’s own IPL.
Despite the fact, Fawad Rana, owner of the Lahore Qalandars in the PSL and the Durban Qalandars in the upcoming T20 Global League wishes to bag Virat Kohli in his team. Rana expressed his desire to secure the services of the heavyweight if the Indian Cricket board allows doing so.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Fawad Rana said “I would have loved to buy Virat for my team. I feel eventually the Indian Board will allow its players to play in foreign leagues. It won’t be like this,”.
Pakistani cricketers are, however, banned from taking part in the lucrative Indian Premier league organized by the BCCI. Though many Pakistani cricketers took part in the inaugural event of the IPL, which is considered as the most popular T20 league in the world.
Virat Kohli is currently in Sri Lanka enjoying a gala time with his team. After performing a whitewash over the hosts in the Test series the Indians have already won the first 3 ODIs of the 5 match series. Virat Kohli played a brilliant knock along with Shikhar Dhawan in the first ODI where he scored an unbeaten 82 run knock from 70 balls. He dispatched 10 boundaries and 1 maximum in the process. Sri Lanka are now in huge trouble as they need to win the rest of the 2 ODIs to secure automatic qualification for the ICC World Cup in 2019.
