To ensure the IPL remains an essentially Indian domestic event, a team is allowed to field only four foreign players per match. Of the remaining seven drawn from India stars and first-class players, at least two under-22 cricketers must be fielded in each game. April 2009, Sydney Nawshad765@hotmail.com
