SLC's new rule: six-month waiting period for retiring players to get NOCs for T20 leagues

Sri Lanka Cricket has released a set of guidelines for players choosing to retire from international cricket, namely a requirement to provide SLC with three months’ notice of their intention to retire, a six-month waiting period post-retirement in order to obtain an NOC to play in overseas franchise tournaments, and the need to play in at least 80% of domestic matches in a season if they are to be eligible for the Lanka Premier League.

  1. Great Job by SLC.
    All our cricketers should realise that they have an obligation to payback the country (or the SLC ) for whatever free service provided to them by the SLC, which enabled them to be International Cricketers. Cricket is now a professional game just like any other job or a professional assignment. When we passed out from the university after receiving 4 yrs of free education we had a requirement to serve the country for 10 yrs. Even if you go out of the country for a scholarship we had to sign for a 2/3 yr bond. Even for resignation from service we had to give 3 months notice.

    All the areas are covered by these 3 rules. Any past retired player (like Thisara & Udana) is not allowed to play in the LPL (acc to rule 3). All these 3 rules will protect our game of cricket from unprofessionally thinking crickets and provide more opportunities to expose more talented & deserved younger players.
