The BCCI will use the NOC regulation to regulate Indian players’ participation in international T20 tournaments. The BCCI is concerned about Indian players competing in international competitions and the proliferation of such tournaments.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has a full agenda for the July 7 Apex Council Meeting. The board is eager to put regulations in place regarding Indian players’ involvement in abroad leagues. The BCCI is concerned about Indian players competing in international competitions and the proliferation of such tournaments, according to sources.
The majority of these leagues are back by Indian businessmen. Who are utilizing their IPL riches to support the establishment of such T20 events. In order to maintain control, the BCCI will impose a few restrictions on players who compete in overseas T20 tournaments such as the ILT20 in the UAE and Major League Cricket in the United States.
According to Cricbuzz, players now need to seek a NOC from the board if they want to be involve in Indian cricket in any form (teaching or otherwise) in the future. The BCCI may also consider instituting a cooling-off period to prohibit players from entering international competitions immediately after retiring.
Aside from that, the board is trying to alter the Impact Player rules in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (SMAT) to match those of the IPL. In contrast to the IPL, an Impact Player could only enter the game before the 16th over in SMAT. Furthermore, similar to the IPL, the BCCI wants sides to exchange team sheets after the toss. Before the toss, teams had to designate 12 players in the previous edition.
BCCI likely to send Indian team first time for Asian Games
During the meeting, there will also be a discussion about India’s participation in the 2018 Asian Games in Hangzhou, China. The BCCI is expected to send a full-strength women’s squad and a second-string men’s side to the event, which will be held from September 27 to October 8. If the BCCI is successful in sending both teams, it will be the first time that Indian cricket teams have participated in the Asian Games.
Discussions on media and sponsorship rights, World Cup trip packages. Stadium redevelopment, and the approval of player contracts for men and women are also expected.
