101 cricketers sever ties with ICL

Former internationals Rohan Gavaskar, Deep Dasgupta and Hemang Badani are among 101 cricketers who have severed links with the rebel ICL and applied to the BCCI to return to the fold under the amnesty scheme that ended May 31.

Seventy-nine current and 11 former Test cricketers -- including ex-captain Ajit Wadekar and off-spin legend Erapalli Prasanna -- have taken advantage of the amnesty scheme launched for those linked with the Subash Chandra-promoted rebel league, the BCCI said.

Significantly, India's only World Cup-winning skipper Kapil Dev, who is chairman of the ICL's Executive Board, and former Test stumper and ex-chief selector Kiran More, haven't severed relations with the league.

"The BCCI, after scrutinising the requests, has written to the concerned state associations that these players are eligible to play in the domestic tournaments for this year," said BCCI secretary N Srinivasan.

"Guidelines with respect to participation in Indian Premier League will be intimated in due course," he said.

The Board has already decided that such persons will have to serve a one-year cooling off period before becoming eligible to play international cricket for the country.

Other ex-Test cricketers who have delinked from the ICL and rejoined the BCCI fold are: Sandeep Patil, Madan Lal, Karsan Ghavri, Balwinder Sandhu, Ashok Malhotra, Pranab Roy, Bharat Reddy, Rajesh Chauhan and Atul Wassan.

Eleven cricketers of the Punjab Cricket Association, including ODI discard Dinesh Mongia, returned to its fold, while 13 and eight players returned to the Tamil Nadu and Hyderabad Cricket Associations respectively.
