MS Dhoni Retired From International Cricket But Still Can’t Participate In SA20, Here’s Why

Many cricketing nations started T20 league contests after the huge success of the Indian Premier League and just recently, South Africa also followed the suit. The SA20 league started on January 10 and it is getting a positive response from public. All the six teams which are participating in the league are owned by the IPL franchises because of which this contest is also being called mini-Indian competition.

Though many foreign players take part in the IPL, no active Indian cricketer is taking part in the SA20 or any other league because the Board of Control for Cricket in India doesn’t allow any Indian cricketer to participate in any other league until and unless he takes retirement from the international cricket and IPL.

Though the SA20 commissioner Graeme Smith wants to involve former Indian cricketer MS Dhoni in the SA20 league in any capacity, it is not possible as of now despite the fact that some CSK coaching staff members including Stephen Fleming, head coach of Chennai Super Kings, is working with the Joburg Super Kings.

This is because MS Dhoni may have taken retirement from the international cricket but he hasn’t taken retirement from the IPL. The probability of Mahi playing cricket for Joburg Super Kings is very less but he may get involved as mentor or play any other role but for that he needs to take retirement from the IPL as well.

As of now, JSK which is being led by Faf du Plessis is at the 4th position with 3 wins in 6 matches. Are you following the SA20 league?
