In the Champions League scheduled for October, a player who qualifies from two different teams (the IPL team and the club team from his own country) can choose which team he wants to represent.
“If a player has played for an IPL team and that team has qualified for the Champions League, and at the same time if he has played for his home team or club and that team has qualified too, the player can choose whom to play for. The option has been given to the player. If the player chooses to play for his home team, so be it.
“If the player chooses his IPL team, the IPL will compensate the home board to the tune of $200,000 (fixed price). In case the player opts for his home team, nothing will be compensated to the IPL franchise,” IPL commissioner Lalit Modi explained.
