KKR may not be able to do anything if the player decides to leave for the camp, but, remains unlikely. He has been one of the most important players in the IPL for KKR having taken 20 wickets in the competition so far. His absence from the team would be a huge loss to KKR.
It is at this juncture that the ICC needs to look into the matter. All such international matches are held under the flag of the ICC. ''IPL is not a private tournament, but has been approved by the ICC. Hence, the ICC should intervene in the present matter over Narine and WICB,'' said Gaekwad.
KKR has roped Narine for huge sum of money, which just adds to the pressure to represent the franchise and on the other hand, there is a question of one's country also. Such cases brings the nation vs club debate in the open, which in itself raises the need for a separate IPL window. Had a separate IPL window been created, this situation would not have even come to the forefront.
But, Gaekwad does not think it is possible to have a separate IPL window. He said, ''An IPL window would always be an ideal situation. But, it is not possible for a separate IPL window, considering the amount of cricket that is played now-a-days.''
