Former India coach Ravi Shastri has slammed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for preventing him from commentating in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for a long time.

The former all-rounder was unavailable for the role of a commentator because he was the Indian cricket team’s head coach.

“This is the 15th edition of the IPL, I did the first 11 years and then thanks to some stupid conflict of interest clause that exists in some stupid constitution that binds us, you could not do the last few seasons,” he said in a press conference organized by Star Sports, reports Cricbuzz.

For the first time in the IPL, Ravi Shastri will deliver Hindi commentary.
