Team India vs World XI match for Independence Day? Government writes to the BCCI

A BCCI source told PTI that for a rest of the world squad, they would need at least 13-14 international players and their availability is something that the board needs to check on

The central government has sent a proposal to the BCCI to organise a Team India vs World XI match on August 22 to mark the celebration of the 75th Independence Day.

A BCCI source told PTI that for a rest of the world squad, they would need at least 13-14 international players and their availability is something that the board needs to check on. 'English domestic cricket would be underway and the Caribbean Premier League would also begin at that time. The BCCI is checking if international players would have to be compensated financially for their participation,' added the source.

Top BCCI officials will be in Birmingham for the ICC annual conference from July 22-26, where they are expected to speak to the officials of other boards to release a few of their players for the match in India.
