Pravin Tambe becomes first Indian to play in CPL

Aug 27, 2020 13:05 IST

Indian leg-spinner Pravin Tambe created history on Wednesday by becoming the first Indian to play in the Caribbean Premier League. An injury to Sunil Narine came as a blessing for Tambe, who replaced him in Trinbago Knight Riders's playing XI. The 48-year-old even went on to pick a wicket in his very first over but didn't bowl after that. Tambe was picked by Kolkata Knight Riders for this year's IPL but the BCCI barred him from playing the league as Tambe breached BCCI's protocols by playing a fracnhise-based league without announcing retirement.
