Summary

  • NEW DELHI: A little-known Delhi player’s inclusion in Ranji debutant Arunachal Pradesh’s list of guest players has come under the scanner with the team struggling to explain why he was picked over more accomplished domestic cricketers.
  • The Arunachal Cricket Association has included Khsitiz Sharma in their list replacing one of the original three players for their debut domestic season.
  • However, much to the surprise of the BCCI’s Cricket Operations team, Arunachal mailed a letter, in possession of PTI, on August 27 to seek a replacement.
  • The Cricket Operations team had then asked Arunachal CA to take approval from GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim for any late replacement.
  • “Yes, I have approved Khsitiz’s name as BCCI extended the inter-state transfer of guest players till September 15 only for the new states,” Karim told PTI today.
