The timing of the deal is interesting. BCCI is still debating a cooling-off period for retired IPL stars to play in foreign leagues.

That thought was set in motion by Rayudu’s signing for MLC side Texas Super Kings. The 37-year-old however later withdrew from the tournament.

Currently, retired players are free to play in overseas leagues.

But BCCI is concerned that with mushrooming leagues abroad, more and more players could opt for a route backed by IPL-owned franchises.

The issue was discussed at the BCCI AGM in July, with a final decision left to the office bearers.
