U-19 Players for Local Franchises Only

reports that

"Each of the franchises in the Indian Premier League will get the first option for picking Under-19 players from their own catchment areas, the Indian board has said. The decision comes in the wake of franchises voicing concerns over player-poaching, with local players being lured by other teams."

VB Chandrashekar, the selector for the Chennai Super Kings was upbeat on hearing the news. But he wished that it would have been great if the ruling covered U-22 players as well.
