No outside player in TN Premier League cricket tournament: SC
Supreme Court bench headed by CJI Dipak Misra today said players registered with other cricket associations won't be allowed to take part in Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) cricket tournament organized by the state cricket association.
It said TNPL matches will be held in accordance with the schedule as already approved by the Committee of Administrators (CoA) which has been administering BCCI.
Outstation players should be allowed to play, argues TNPL advocate
Senior advocate Ranjit Kumar, appearing for TNPL, has submitted that outstation players should be allowed to participate in the prestigious tournament after they produce a no objection certificate (NOC) from their respective cricket associations.
Eight teams are participating in the tournament and every team is allowed to induct two players from outside the state to play for it in the TNPL, he said.
No outside player has been playing this tournament since 2009
Senior advocate Parag Tripathi, appearing for CoA, opposed the submission saying the same has been disallowed by the CoA after considering the draft constitution of the BCCI.
He also said no outside player has been playing this tournament since 2009.
The TNPL tournament, which begins today, has eight teams and every team has been allowed to have a pool of 20 players each.
