WHY THERE ARE NO INDIAN PLAYERS IN “THE HUNDRED” LEAGUE?

This question was asked several times to the ECB officials and they responded that this is a bit of a political issue, Previously Players from West Indies and the Indian team were doubtful to be included in the new “Hundred” tournament. West Indian players were doubtful citing clash with the CPL and some of the West Indian fixtures, however, Now the air has cleared after the new draft includes West Indies Players as listed below.

For Indian Players, BCCI does not allow them to take part in any external league (Any league other than IPL). BCCI keeps Indian players exclusive to the Indian Cricket League only. BCCI did not release any player to take part in the new “THE HUNDRED” league despite the great interest shown from ECB. Their president also expressed his interest in the matter and quoted the example of the Indian Skipper Virat Kohli who players for Surrey but could not take part in the last season due to injury.
