BCCI Ready to Help Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Association: Pathan
Jammu and Kashmir cricket mentor Irfan Pathan on Monday said the BCCI has promised them help after the team was forced to pull out of a domestic tournament due to the communication clampdown in the valley.
The Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) pulled out of the upcoming Vizzy Trophy after it failed to establish contact with the players due to communication restrictions in the valley following the revocation of the state's special status.
Pathan attended a meeting on the contentious conflict of interest issue.
The out-of-favour India all-rounder informed that the team had begun preparations for the upcoming season but its plans were disturbed by the curfew imposed in the valley.
"(But) when the matches started, we had to stop (training) as curfew was imposed and it was better to send back all the kids (players to their respective homes)," he said.
Restrictions have been imposed in Jammu and Kashmir after the Narendra Modi-led government revoked the special status given to the state.
The Vizzy trophy is a pre-season preparation tournament.
