Rajasthan’s cricketers face an uncertain future with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) excluding the state association from their annual fixtures book. The handbook, mailed to all state associations, covers Under-16, Under-19, Under-23, Ranji Trophy and women’s cricket fixtures but doesn’t include Rajasthan.
The BCCI had suspended the Rajasthan Cricket Association after Lalit Modi, the former Indian Premier League commissioner who is serving a life ban, was allowed to contest elections and was elected its president in May this year.
It is learnt that during a tours and fixtures committee meeting, that took place at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai a few weeks ago, Rajasthan was included as part of every age group, and also in the Ranji Trophy fixtures. The decision to exclude Rajasthan was made without the knowledge of officials who are part of the tours and fixtures committee, a top BCCI official confirmed on Saturday.
Rajasthan were placed in Group B, which comprised Maharashtra, Punjab, Gujarat, Saurashtra, Delhi, Vidarbha, Haryana and Odisha, of the Ranji Trophy fixtures. It waits to be seen if the BCCI will issue No Objection Certificates to players who want to turn out for other teams in the 2014-15 season.
