Colombo: The Sri Lankan cricket board does not have any albel at present. A few days ago, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board made some rules regarding fitness. After that, 30-year-old Sri Lankan cricketer Bhanuka Rajapaksa started playing international cricket. Yesterday, opener Danushka Gunatilka also retired from Test cricket. The Sri Lankan cricket board has since announced some new rules for the retirement of cricketers. For those Sri Lankan cricketers who have recently announced their retirement or are considering retirement, Sri Lankan Cricket has laid down some strict rules. This was reported through a press release.
The Sri Lankan Cricket Board has made three important decisions regarding cricketers.
1. If an international player wants to announce his retirement, he will have to give three months’ notice to the cricket board. The cricketer can accept retirement only after the notice period.
2. After accepting retirement, he will not be allowed to play in T20 and other franchise league cricket tournaments of other countries immediately. The NOC will be issued by the board after a period of at least six months from the date of acceptance of retirement and thereafter they will be able to participate in outside competitions.
3. Only players who have represented Sri Lanka in 80 per cent of the matches in Sri Lanka’s domestic cricket tournaments will be eligible for competitions like the Sri Lankan Premier League.
