The Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) is just three away from the opening match, but the State Association is yet to receive clearance from BCCI about players participation.

In its letter, signed by TNPL Chairman P.S Raman, the TNCA had requested the Board to grant it permission to field outstation cricketers, who have jobs and ration cards in Tamil Nadu, in the Twenty 20 league beginning on August 24.

It had also appealed to the BCCI to release Tamil Nadu cricketers, not picked in the eleven for the Duleep Trophy games so that they are available for the TNPL matches.

“Instead of sitting idle there, they can come here and play a few games. But the BCCI has not got back to us and there is very little time remaining,” said a top TNCA source.

The source added, “There are cricketers who are employed in Chennai and who possess ration cards here. They don’t become outstation players just because they are born outside the State.”

Meanwhile, the next edition of TNPL will be played in July 2017

The TNCA plans to hold the next edition of the TNPN in July 2017 to avoid a clash of dates with any other domestic tournament.

“This being the inaugural year, we needed more time to organise the tournament.

“That is why we could not hold the TNPL in July. Next year, we will have the competition in July,” added the source.

Karnataka is the first state to start IPL like T20 tournament now Tamil Nadu will host the tournament taking the cue of the popularity of the league and profit from the broadcasting revenue.
