Hyderabad: TRS MLA and former minister Danam Nagender today expressed displeasure at IPL cricket selections which failed to pick up one cricketer from Hyderabad. We will not allow the cricket match to be played if our players are not taken, Nagender said.
He sought the team should accommodate local players or remove the name of our city from Hyderabad Sunrisers.
Talking to press persons he hit out at the IPL selections and auction went on as it denied a chance to a cricketer from Hyderabad. The former minister sought that the team selections should have cricketers from Hyderabad as it has many players of talent. IPL Auction and selection was not upto the mark and the way it is functioning is not satisfying the former minister felt.
Hyderabad name should be avoided from the team name he demanded.
Either they should select our players from our city or remove it from the team name, he said. Hyderabad name from Hyderabad Sunrisers team, Nagender asked. His discontent was that Hyderabad players were denied a chance in the match.
