U19 WC Stars INELIGIBLE? This list features the likes of Haryana’s Dinesh Bana, the wicketkeeper-batter who has recently become a sensation, and Andhra’s Shaikh Rasheed, who played a match-winning knock in the final. Besides them, Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Manav Parakh, Nishant Sindhu, Grav Sangwan, Ravi Kumar and Siddarth Yadav also are among those not fulfilling the IPL auction criteria.
Why these youngesters are not fulfilling ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA? According to the rules of the competition, a UNCAPPED player will be eligible for auction only if he fulfils any of the two criteria –
- The player should be over 19 years of age
- If he is a U19 player, he should have represented his state team in at least one senior-level first-class game or a List A game.
The 8 mentioned U19 cricketers doesn’t fulfil this criteria.
COVID-19 pandemic forced the domestic Under-19 competitions to run simultaneously with the senior-level competitions, which prevented many of India’s U19 stars to feature in their state’s senior team.
However, many have appealed to the BCCI to amend their rule in order to accommodate these eight players in the auction pool, given their recent exploits.
“I feel the BCCI should consider this as a special case and the players should not lose out because of this. The team has done really well and they should not be deprived of the opportunity,” BCCI administrator Ratnakar Shetty said, as quoted by The Indian Express.
If the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) does not amend this rule for the IPL 2022 auction, a total of eight members of Yash Dhull’s team will be ineligible to go under the hammer on 12th and 13th February.
