The Adani Group’s first venture into cricket seems to have gotten off to a promising start with a strong lineup of players, but the Chris Lynn stalemate, which Cricbuzz reported on in a previous article, continues to be a point of emphasis. However, the management of Adani Sportsline is optimistic that a peaceful conclusion can be reached.
When the Gulf Giants’ 14-man roster was revealed on Wednesday, 32-year-old Lynn had a significant role in the announcement (August 17). The response from Cricket Australia (CA) was that the player has not yet sought the requisite NOC, which will let him to compete in any international event. The UAE League (ILT20) will take place in the months of January and February (2023).
“CA’s view is that we have not received any NOC requests and we are already aware that he has signed with (the) UAE (league”), stated a representative for the Big Bash League (BBL), while a spokesman for CA gave a statement that was largely comparable to the other organization’s statement. “Cricket Australia has not yet been presented with a request for a no objection certificate in connection with any player’s involvement in international leagues for the next season,” you can read.
On the other hand, a spokesman for the athlete shared with Cricbuzz that his squad is working very hard to win the NOC. The management of Adani Sportsline is also sure that the issue will be rectified. “We are working on the NOC for his account. I really hope that we will be able to come up with something, “a representative from Adani Sportsline was quoted as saying. The man himself, Lynn, could not be reached for a remark.
Lynn, who is a powerful opening batsman, does not currently have a contract with the BBL. In the past, he has participated in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with the Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Kolkata Knight Riders.
It has been communicated to all participating teams in the ILT20 that they must, in order, reveal their rosters of 14 players, with the provision that they may include an additional four players from the UAE at a later date. It has been announced that the teams for Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Gulf Giants have been chosen. It is anticipated that the teams for Capri Global, Lancer Capital, and Delhi Capital will make their selections in the following few days.
The most important problem that the league needs to solve is determining whether or not there will be a player from Pakistan. To this day, no team has expressed a preference. The Indian investors who own five of the six teams are not selecting Pakistani players because they are afraid of the reaction they will receive in India. Now, everyone’s attention is focused on the Lancer Capital team, which is led by the management of Manchester United and does not face any such threat.
