Mumbai: The BCCI has debarred Indian players from taking part in the Sri Lankan Premier League as the event is being organised by a "private party" based in Singapore instead of the island nation's Cricket Board. (Also read: SLC hurt by BCCI no to Sri Lanka Premier League)
"We took the decision at an informal meeting of 18-20 members that no Indian cricketer will be given permission to take part in the league as it is being organised by a private party based in Singapore. The Board's policy is not to allow players to take part in private party-organised tournaments," BCCI president Shashank Manohar told PTI from Nagpur.
Manohar said unless the Board gives them a No Objection Certificate, Indian players cannot participate in the Lankan Twenty20 league.
