Mumbai: The Cricket Association of Pondicherry (CAP) said on Monday that it would move court against the Cricket Board, which it claimed had committed contempt of court by refusing to grant the membership.
"Despite an order by the Ambattur court (Chennai) in 2005 to grant us membership, the BCCI refused to recognise us. They are treating us like any other Union Territory and are not ready for our separation with the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association," CAP Secretary P Damodaren said after attending the Cricket Board's 82nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) here.
"I had raised the membership issue at the AGM, but it was rejected. I asked them to allow players from Pondicherry to participate in Ranji and other tournaments, but this request was rejected as well.
