However, a decision on the same is yet awaited from the Indian cricket board, the debate is a long one among the retired cricketers.


In the wake of the same, former Indian cricketer and T20 World Cup winner Robin Uthappa threw light on the same. The retired cricketer feels that a cooling-off period for retired cricketers would be “uncomfortable and unfair”.


“I think it is human nature to feel uncomfortable about it. We do not have any central contract with the BCCI, we are not playing cricket in India anymore so it certainly does make you feel a little uncomfortable and unfair for sure,” Uthappa said, replying to a PTI query.


The 37-year-old Karnataka cricketer, who called of his time from international cricket in 2022 further added, “BCCI has certainly looked after all of us. I am certain whatever decision they take will be in the best interest of the BCCI and the players who are going to play in the IPL.”
