New Delhi: With the Indian domestic season set to kick off in another month and a half, the future of top Rajasthan cricketers like Pankaj Singh, Robin Bist and Ashok Menaria hangs in balance as it is difficult for them to even get an inter-state transfer to play for any other state.

The time-frame for seeking an inter-state transfer ends on September 1 and although some of the top Rajasthan players had offers from other states, they won't be able to seek a transfer as they can't get a no objection certificate (NOC) from their home state. The ball is now in BCCI's court to bail those players out, who want to play for another state.
"Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) as of now is banned by the BCCI. Therefore, a banned state body can't give NOC to any player, who is seeking an inter-state transfer," a senior BCCI official told PTI today.
