Meanwhile, as per a report Yuvraj is likely to get permission from BCCI. “He has not yet written to the board and once he does that, then only we can consider his case. But since he will not be playing the IPL, there is little ground for not giving him the permission. Retired players of his stature have been allowed to play outside India," a BCCI official told PTI.
