BCCI Disallows Outstation Players From Participating In TNPL
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has continued to be on its stand and have disallowed outstation cricketers from taking part in the second edition of Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). The decision has been taken just a day after the news of Suresh Raina and Yusuf Pathan registering themselves for TNPL draft. Raina even confirmed the news on Twitter but now BCCI has again denied players permission to play in a league run by a state association. Last year as well, BCCI didn’t allow players to take part in the league.
BCCI acting secretary have sent a letter to Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), asking for an explanation why the board allowed outstation players to register for TNPL when the board had already denied them a permission last year,
“A letter has been sent along with minutes of a BCCI working committee decision from a few years back which clearly says that outstation players won’t be allowed in state association T20 league. We will wait for TNCA response now but BCCI stands remain the same as before,” BCCI official told Indian Express.
A total of 80 players had registered themselves for the players draft to be held on June 23, the same day when the draft for the released player was also to happen. As per the rules, a franchise was allowed to have three outstation players on the roster with two of them being allowed to be part of playing XI. With BCCI now not allowing outside players to take part in the league, it has open the doors for the local boys.
One thing is to be noted that even before BCCI sent a notice to TNCA, the Maharashtra Cricket Association had already disallowed its player Rahul Tripathi – one of the applicants who applied for TNPL – to take part in the league. Board didn’t provide Tripathi with an NOC, which restricted him from applying for the league.
The second edition of the TNPL will kick off from July 22.
