I think if the authorities at least give some instructions that players will be signed for at least three years to a particular team and only if the team and the player mutually agree to change the franchise then they can do it.

But I truly feel that if we the players could play for a certain team for like two-three years or for a longer period then our bonding with the team and also with the fans of the region will get even stronger.

I think if the authorities at least give some instructions that players will be signed for at least three years to a particular team and only if the team and the player mutually agree to change the franchise then they can do it.
