Durban: After the controversial 'Multiple captain theory', John Buchanan has now floated the idea of having more than four foreign players in the playing XI of the Indian Premier League sides.
Former Australian coach said that he had informed the matter to the IPL authorities and was hopeful that if not this season, such a thing would be allowed in the third edition of the Twenty20 league.

"It is a question that we have posed to IPL a number of times about the involvement of more players on the field. I have personally mentioned that a number of times," Buchanan said.
"Hopefully IPL will look at that more seriously going forward into next season and beyond," the Australian told reporters after the Knight Riders went down to Kings XI Punjab yesterday.
