According to Raman, there is a BCCI rule which says a person can play for a state only if he is born in that state or has migrated to the state and has taken a no-objection certificate from the state in which he was born. In this case, BCCI has taken a stand that no-objection certificates should not be given to players to participate in other state premier leagues. “How can you prevent a player from another state, who is already playing in TNCA’s first division league, from playing in TNPL. For instance, Piyush Chawla plays for Chemplast in The Hindu Trophy, he plays in the VIP Trophy and in Palayampatti Shield. He is here playing cricket for five months in a year, but he can’t play in TNPL alone. We have got 18 to 20 cricketers who are playing in TNCA’s first division league,”says Raman.
