After India's semi-final loss to England, the media focused on Rahul Dravid's remark that Indian players should play in foreign leagues.

English players' Big Bash League experience helped them win. Jos Buttler and Alex Hales were more familiar with Australian conditions than the Indian team because they play in abroad leagues.

The BCCI has banned Indian cricketers from playing overseas. Internet discussion erupted after Dravid said Indian cricketers would benefit from overseas events.

Former India captain and head coach Anil Kumble also echoed Dravid’s words and favored the cricketers to participate in global leagues. However, Ravi Shastri and Zaheer Khan think otherwise.

The duo believed Indian players play enough domestic and IPL cricket.

“There is enough domestic cricket for all the players to get a hang of the system. They are playing in the IPL and should focus on domestic cricket,” opined Shastri.

Zaheer Khan pointed out that the BCCI has laid down a robust domestic structure so that the players are not required to go overseas.
