JKCA-Players Row deepens
Players Lock SK Stadium Gates
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 30: The Ranji trophy selection row between J&K Cricket Association (JKCA) and Kashmir province players turned ugly on Friday as agitated players locked Sheri-Kashmir Cricket Stadium, Sonwar here.
According to eyewitnesses players numbering around 40 locked the main gate stadium building following which they went to JKCA officials and selectors homes.
“We have locked down the gates and will not relent till we get justice. They are killing Kashmiri talent for saving their own chairs,” said senior player Majid Dar
“It is irony that instead of helping us to get justice, JKCA Kashmir Wing officials have adopted divide and rule policy and are threatening youngsters of life ban with the motive to push some Kashmiri players into the team for Guwahati match to save their face,” he added.
Another player Abid Nabi said that players would continue their fight against justice saying the players want total overhaul of JKCA.
“ They are only caring about their chairs and position in the administration of JKCA. The JK Cricket is in total mess and injustice is meted out to players from Kashmir province,” Abid said.
“If the performance of high standards is the basis of selection then hardly any one deserve place in the team. In first two matches, barring two or three players each player performed normally and don’t deserve total revamp of team for the next match,” he added.
According to sources players went to the residence of former well known cricketer, Abdur Rouf, selector Muhammad Ashraf and JKCA and current Treasurer Manzoor Wazir.
“I told them If there was injustice with them, boycott was no solution to the problem. They were already selected and their boycott paved way for all Jammu team, “said Abdur Rouf.
Selector M Ashraf said that players had come to his residence but he was not at home.
