It’s not fair to the existing teams when they are trying to balance everything: BCCI Official
The BCCI official further said that the teams’ current balance should not be affected. The official finished by saying that it is impossible to prevent this kind of attempts, notably when there is a good rivalry, even though it is not appropriate to the current teams if players are contacted in this manner.
“We don’t want to disturb the balance. You cannot avoid such things when there is fierce competition. But it’s not fair to the existing teams when they are trying to balance everything,” concluded the BCCI official.
Rashid Khan has already advised SRH that he intends to be the club’s first player to be signed, or else he would quit. KL Rahul and the PBKS are also said to be in negotiations regarding the right-handed batsman leaving the franchise.
