BCCI 'Ban' English Players for cricket in India.

The Board Of Cricket Control Of Indian has reacted angrily to the Indian loss in the test series to England 1-2 earlier this winter, by banning a group of country players to practice in India.

English Players used to come to India to practice on spinning tracks and learn the skill used to play spin bowling. There trips are organized by Sachin Bajaj, The founder of Global Cricket School.  Around 30 players from Yorkshire, Durham, Kent, Hampshire, Glamorgan, Gloucestershire and Nottinghamshire were due to fly to India in the coming weeks.

But BCCI officials had other thoughts on their mind, they have instructed all ground authorities in Pune, where the GCS is based, that no foreign players must use their facilities without official permission. They seem to be very upset with how England Middle order Batsman Joe Root made his International debut on the spinning tracks on India. Joe Root had the experience of playing in Indian conditions  before he made his debut for England.

This is an extension of a row that arose before Christmas when the BCCI considered the England Performance Programme’s tour, running alongside the Test tour, as unsanctioned. Steven Finn bowled 23 overs in that match and Joe Root made 166 in that particular unofficial match.

But one doesn't really understand  that by employing so many foreigners in its IPL India has been
helping its international opponents for many years.
