Last year, Siddhesh Lad moved to the Goa Cricket Association (GCA). This year, he has asked the board for a No Objection Certificate (NOC). He wants to move back to Mumbai, as long as the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) doesn’t make him wait the required amount of time.
According to MCA rules, players who want to play for Mumbai or who want to come back to the team will have to wait one year.
The 31-year-old Lad, who has played 67 first-class matches, has already gotten the NOC from Goa, according to the MCA, GCA, and people close to him. “It’s up to the MCA to decide where he will play. The cooling-off rule is what makes the difference. “He hasn’t decided yet if he will move to another state,” said a person close to the player.
Lad has played 52 games for Mumbai, getting 3,591 runs at an average of 41.75, with eight centuries and 21 fifties. During his time with Goa, he made 189 runs in six first-class games over the course of one season.
MCA’s request to Punam
Indian cricket player Punam Raut, who has played for a long time, has asked the MCA to get rid of the one-year “cooling-off” rule. During the last local season, she played for Uttarakhand. She has also played 35 T20Is, 73 ODIs, and four Tests for India.
“My parents taught me how to play cricket, and the Mumbai Women’s team was the first team I ever played for. That was in 2006. I’ve always liked playing here, and I’ll always remember those times. Since then, I’ve had a lot of success with Team India over the last 12 years, and it’s all thanks to the amazing support from the MCA’s top officials,” the 33-year-old bowler wrote to the MCA.
“I agree that I had to play for Uttarakhand last year because when I asked to play for Team Mumbai, I didn’t hear back from enough people.” But I’m ready to use my experience and skills again for the MCA and give Team Mumbai my all in every part I play. Keeping this in mind, I want you to think about my application and experience.”
