Now that is interesting. Srilankan cricket board has refused to give no objection certificates to as much as 16 players for BPL. This news has caused a stir in the players yet it is authoritative move and the players will have to accept it.
This decision will now definitely dent the BPL because there are some major names in this list of players. As per a SLC official all the players are under central contract so they will have to obey the rules implemented by the board.
SLC wants these players to take part in the Premium limited over tournament that will take place in Srilanka. Also there are a few players who will be selected for the tour to New Zealand.
Srilankan team will be flying to New Zealand on 27 November. The names of the players affected are:
Shehan Jayasuriya, Isuru Udana, Dilruwan Perera, Dhammika Prasad, Milinda Siriwardana, Binura Fernando, Ajantha Mendis, Lahiru Thirimanne, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Niroshan Dickwella, Prasanna Jayawardene, Ashan Priyanjan, Sachith Pathirana, Sachithra Senanayake, Seekkuge Prasanna, Upul Tharanga, Jeevan Mendis.
