in

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today announced that as many as 79 current players who had severed their ties with the rebel Indian Cricket League and applied to it for amnesty would be eligible to play in the domestic tournaments for this year.

The players include former internationals Rohan Gavaskar, Deep Dasgupta and Hemang Badani

The players had written to the BCCI that they be allowed to rejoin the "mainstream of Indian cricket under the amnesty scheme offered by BCCI," the Board said in a statement today. The amnesty scheme had ended on May 31.

Along with the players, 11 former Test cricketers and 11 support staff and officials had also applied for amnesty, it said. The former Test cricketers, who are involved with the game as coaches, officials and in other capacities, include former skipper Ajit Wadekar, Sandeep Patil, E A S Prasanna, Madan Lal, Karsan Ghavri and Balwinder Singh Sandhu.

The Board said that guidelines with respect to the players' participation in the Indian Premier League would be intimated in due course.

The BCCI had made it clear that those who return to its fold would have to serve out a one-year cooling period before becoming eligible to represent the country in international matches.

Former Indian captain Kapil Dev and wicket-keeper Kiran More, who was also the chairman of the BCCI Selectors Committee at one time, have not severed their links with the ICL, which was floated by the Zee Group headed by Subhash Chandra.
