Pravin Tambe, the Mumbai, Indian player on Wednesday became the first-ever Indian to play in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) match against St Lucia Zouks.
At his debut match, the spinner took his debut wicket of Najibullah with a Googly ball.
Tambe made his IPL debut at the age of 41 and he is the oldest IPL player in history when Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Daredevils at Jaipur in May 2013
In February, IPL chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed that “Tambe had initially announced his retirement. But he then came out of his retirement, after which he took part in the Mumbai League. He then went and played in Dubai in T10 League without informing anyone. We have disqualified him from the IPL as he is a current player and he did not take permission from the board.”
After getting snubbed from IPL 2020, TKR bagged Tambe for CPL
Indian players are currently not allowed to play in overseas leagues unless they have retired from domestic cricket.
