Tambe to be first India cricketer to play in the 2020 CPL
|| Desk Report ||
Indian old-aged leg spinner Pravin Vijoy Tambe is set to be the first Indian cricketer to play in the upcoming edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
The forthcoming CPL edition is scheduled to be held between August 18 to September 10.
Tambe has been signed by Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR), a franchise co-owned by Bollywood superstar actor Shah Rukh Khan, who co-owns the Knight Riders franchise and started its journey in the Indian Premier League as Kolkata Knight Riders in 2008.
The wrist spinner, who played just two first-class matches for his home team Mumbai in 2013-14, was sold to KKR in the IPL auctions in December. The 48-year-old has played for Rajasthan Royals, Gujarat Lions and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL.
But he was forced out of the cash-rich league, which has been indefinitely postponed this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, after being disqualified by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for playing in unsanctioned cricket leagues like the T10.
The CPL draft was carried out remotely on Monday as teams filled out their rosters with both Caribbean and overseas players, including Rashid Khan from Afghanistan and New Zealand’s Ross Taylor.
