Players welcome court order

Kolkata, August 27: In a heartening development for the Indian Cricket League, the Delhi High Court has asked the giant public sector firms, including Air India and Indian Oil Corporation, not to dismiss its employees who joined the Indian Cricket League. This bit of news has definitely come as a boon for the cricketer who have joined the band of renegades. And a few are now even dreaming of making it to their respective state side and a few are also thinking about representing the nation.

One of the promising domestic cricketer, Abhisekh Jhunjhunwala who has joined the ICL’s fold, welcomed the move and said: “I am very happy with the court’s decision. I am a lot relived now. I hope I can now play for Bengal and even India now.”

With the honourable high court also directing the national cricket association to stop taking action against players joining the unapproved Twenty20 competition, the players do have a lot to cheer about.

Jhunjhunwala’s teammate and former captain, Deep Dasgupta was fierier in his approach and said: “This judgment has come as a pat in the back for us.

“Nobody can stop us from practicing at our favourite grounds. They cannot also keep us isolated from the rest of the cricket fraternity in the country.”

The court also issued notices to state cricket associations as well as state-run firms who are threatening action against their players if they join the ICL. Jhunjhunwala is elated at this proposal and is looking forward to start practicing at his beloved Eden Gardens very shortly.

The Bengal players, who have joined the ICL’s fold, will leave for Chennai on August 29, to take part in a three weeklong conditioning camp at the Mayajaal Sporting Complex at the outskirts of the city.

However, the Cricket Association of Bengal refused to comment about the whole development.

The association’s joint secretary, Amitabha Banerjee said: “We are affiliated to the Board of Control for Cricket in India and whatever circular they send us, we will act accordingly.”

In a fistfight between the two parties, BCCI and ICL, this bout definitely went to ICL this time round, but in this oscillating battle, nobody knows who will have the last laugh.
