Earlier Irfan Pathan became the first Indian cricketer to join the CPL draft for the Upcoming edition of CPL.
“Irfan was told to withdraw his name from the draft. As far as Yuvraj is concerned, we need to check the rules. Even if he retires from first-class cricket, he will still be an active T20 player registered under BCCI. The rule needs to be checked,” a senior BCCI functionary said.
The BCCI official said, “The T10 might have been approved by the ICC, but it’s still not an acknowledged format. But yes, going forward, as and when the players association takes shape, the case for retired players may come up for consideration.”

While Irfan Pathan could not play the IPL 2019, he is doing commentary during IPL 2019. If both get clearance from BCCI to play in the overseas t20 League, might they play in Global t20 Canada, Ram slam t20 and Caribbean primer league. But first, they need to announce the retirement from international cricket and first-class cricket to play in the overseas leagues.
