ICL, the breakway cricket league manages to lure three Assam cricketers

Guwahati : Three Assam Cricketers- Abu Nascim Ahmed, Parvez Aziz and Sujay Tarafdar had singed up for the Essel Group’s breakaway venture Indian Cricket League (ICL) on Tuesday. The trio, who were accompanying the state team for an exposure tour in Chennai, left the team hotel on Tuesday to join the rebel party. .

The is for the first time any players from Assam had joined ICL. However Vasant Sarvanan, S Satish and Kiran Powar, all of whom had represented Assam in the Ranji Trophy tournament as out station players earlier are already in ICL..

The trios' decision to play for ICL would definitely hamper the state teams' performance in the coming season as all of them performed superbly for the state Ranji squad as well as U-19 team in last year and also looked good nick this season. Abu and Sujay, both are the upcoming pace bowlers of the state and Parvez is a opening batsman, Abu, a U-19 world cupper, was also the member of the India U-19 squad which won tri nation tournament in Colombo very recently.

Meanwhile the Assam Cricket Association in its brief reaction said if the cricketers changed their decision and wanted to return they were welcome. Otherwise as per the BCCI's instruction, all three wouldn't be allowed to play any tournament under the affiliated units of BCCI
