Jamshedpur: Jan 4, 2012

 

To provide more opportunities to local talents, Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) has amended its selection policy, making it mandatory for outstation players to play for two year in the state before finding a place in the state team.

As per the amendment passed at JSCA’s tournament sub-committee meeting held here recently, it is mandatory for players from outside Jharkhand to play for affiliated clubs and districts in local tournaments for a year following their registration.

They will be inducted in the district teams to play for tournaments organised by JSCA based on their performances in the second year, JSCA secretary Rajesh Verma said here on Wednesday.

After they complete two years in the state, JSCA will consider them for selection in the state teams (U-16, U-19, U-22 and Ranji teams) based on their performance.

“The purpose is to provide opportunities to local talents even though BCCI allows maximum of three outstation players to play for the state team,” Verma said.

However, it has been observed that the outside players do not wish to stay back long with the state team once they prove their mettle, he said.

 

Admitting that about 25 to 30 per cent of the team is comprised of the outside players, Verma said the amendment was brought in the larger interest of the state’s budding cricketers.

Verma, however, clarified that the amendment will not be applicable to a cricketer born in the state but residing outside.

Currently, a resident of Uttar Pradesh, Ashish Yadav and B Bhima Rao of Chattisgarh were among others who represented Jharkhand in U-22 league matches this season.

Rao had even represented Jharkhand in Ranji one-day league tournament.

Asim Kumar Singh, convener of JSCA’s tournament sub-committee, told PTI that the amendment has already come into force and was implemented in the ongoing under-19 tournament.

“We have written to all affiliated district and clubs to provide details of outstation cricketers playing for their respective teams,” he said, adding that such players will not be entertained even after completion of two years if the affiliated district and clubs failed to respond soon. (PTI)
