BCCI Deny Giving NoC to Harbhajan Singh For The Hundred

According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, off-spinner Harbhajan Singh had entered the draft of The Hundred at a base price of £100,000.

But in a latest development, the player has denied any such move, in a fresh report in Times of India.

According to the report, the BCCI has also denied providing the NOC to Harbhajan.

"Harbhajan has never sought a No Objection Certificate from the BCCI. He can't just enroll his name in any league. It's against the BCCI's policy. The board has checked with him after the report surfaced and he has categorically denied any such development," a BCCI official said.

The draft includes some other big players like Eoin Morgan, David Warner, Steve Smith and Chris Gayle, with over 25 overseas players, and will take place on October 20 in London.

But for Harbhajan to play in the The Hundred, he will have to get BCCI’s nod, which doesn’t allow its players to participate in foreign leagues. Some time back, even Yuvraj Singh had to announce his retirement to play in the Global Canada Twenty20.

Harbhajan, who last played for India in 2016, in Asia Cup, is yet to get in touch with the board regarding the same.
