No Indian Players for Sri Lanka Premier League

Indian cricket players have been debarred by the BCCI from taking part in the Sri Lanka Premier League. The reason quoted is that the event is being organized by a “private party” which is based in Singapore instead of the Sri Lanka’s Cricket Board.

The BCCI president Shashank Manohar who is in Nagpur presently is quoted saying, “We took the decision at an informal meeting of 18-20 members held yesterday that no Indian cricketer will be given permission to take part in the league as it is being organized by a private party based in Singapore. The Board’s policy is not to allow players to take part in private party-organized tournaments.

Indian players are not allowed to even participate in the Lankan Twenty20 league unless the Board gives them a No Objection Certificate. The Lankan Twenty20 is also being organized by a private party on behalf of Sri Lanka Cricket Board. Manohar elaborated that they had initially thought of giving them permission to participate in the League matches. But after they came to know that the event was being organized by a private firm based in Singapore, the Board decided against letting the players play for them. The Sri Lankan Cricket Board has already been informed about it.

Young Indian cricketers like Praveen Kumar, Munaf Patel and R Ashwin and many others have shown interest in participating in the Sri Lankan Premier League. The venue of  SLPL is the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo and it will be taking place starting from July 19 and ending on August 4 .The other cricketers interested were taking part in the ODI series with the West Indies.

All the rights of the tournament, including signing of players’ contracts, are vested with the Singapore-based private firm. The BCCI President does not want to disclose the name of the private firm.

The BCCI does not expect the Sri Lanka board to oppose back by not giving permission to its players from taking part in much hyped Indian Premier League which is owned by BCCI itself.IPL has had four successful seasons and the BCCI hopes to have good relations with Sri Lanka in future too.
