Niranjan Shah, the secretary of Indian board decided that that all the leading Players those are joining the Indian Cricket League (ICL) will be banned for life. His stand is very clear. Players who take part I the Indian Cricket League (ICL) will never be entitled to play for the country again. It is up to the players to decide what they want to do,
Ban would apply to players yet to represent the country. Absolutely, it is applicable to all players and domestic cricket would also be out of bounds for such players.
Unofficial ICL, which is being bankrolled by Zee channel, the India’s largest listed media company, and carrying a prize of US$1 million, the competition would mainly feature players coming out of retirement.
Everybody would wishes to official cricket, not the oldies. It seems no reason for young players going there only those who play official cricket can represent India, The BCCI would take a decision on Kapil Dev’s chairmanship of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) at its general body meeting on August 21. Kapil Dev had joined the ICL’s executive board as its chairman and has been at odds with the BCCI eve since. He had called recent remarks made by Sharad Pawar, the BCCI president, about the ICL, ‘Shameful’.
If the board thinks that only the national XI can attract crowds, then it should stop conducing any domestic tournament. The BCCI should not be threatening players because they cannot perform on the field under fear. The BCCI is scared of the ICL that is the only reason it is not willing to talk to them.More on:BCCI, icl, India, Kapil Dev, NCA, Sharad Pawar
