The BPL is different because it is a two-week tournament that does not disrupt the international schedule. Players only play if they are not in national duty.
i agree..if ipl gets a international window then its not a Indian league anymore
but it doesn't have a int window yet so its an Indian league and indian players gets the preference more then any other players...i hated when oversea players were getting more chances in the BPL so its only logical
