Decision taken by the Rajasthan High Court has brought back the hopes of the state’s cricketers for playing in the BCCI’s domestic competitions this year. The High court passed an interim order appointing selection committees which will be picking teams for represent the state in various BCCI domestic tournaments for the 2014-15 season.

The teams selected by the committess will play under the name of Rajasthan XI but not under the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA).

The order was been passed by Justice MN Bhandari, who was hearing a petition, actually filed on September 16 by former Rajasthan player Nikhil Doru and few others on the behalf of the 75 Rajasthan players chanllenging the BCCI’s decision.

The BCCI has all along maintained that we do not want the players to suffer. We are delighted that that the players’ interests have been taken care of,” secretary Sanjay Patel told to media.

On Tuesday, Justice Bhandari asked both BCCI and RCA to discuss and to give a proposal to allow Rajasthan teams to participate in the various domestic tournaments. After that, both the associations were asked to nominate a set of names each, who would effectively act as selectors.

Today the court finalised the three groups, each one for the men’s team, men’s juniors and one for women’s cricket. Each of the set contains three selectors led by another selector who will be acting as an expert.

Earlier, the BCCI suspended the RCA in May after the RCA elected Lalit Modi, an expelled administrator, as their president. Recently, BCCI excluded RCA from the domestic programme for the upcoming season, which will be starting from next week.
