Rattled by the sting operation which brought unethical dealings
between domestic players and the franchises to the fore, the
BCCI has decided to auction all uncapped players from next
edition of the tournament.
domestic players will be put under the hammer from the next
edition of the tournament," Shukla said.
to IPL players guideline, the franchises are not allowed
to pay more than Rs 3 million to uncapped players, which was
a cause of anger among many domestic players who were missing
out on big monies due to the rule of having an India cap in
order to be included in the auction pool.
said the reason BCCI did not auction uncapped players was
due to the fact that franchises usually opt for well-known
(not auctioning players) was done to open up opportunities
for little known domestic players as teams normally go for
the known faces only," he stated.
said the BCCI has "zero tolerance" towards corruption
pointing out the suspension of five players caught in the
sting operation pending inquiry. He also said a team of anti-corruption
unit of ICC had been keeping a close watch on the players
the same breadth, he added that the BCCI was not responsible
for the conduct of players off the field.
brushed aside the criticism by Member of Parliament and former
cricketer turned MP Kirti Azad who had called for drastic
measures to clean up the system.
2-3 MPs call for ban, it can't be taken as view of the House.
IPL-V has been very successful and was watched in 192 countries
across the world. Hence people are jealous. Will Parliament
be closed if some MPs do something wrong? These MPs don't
know the pulse of the people," he told a news channel.
