CHENNAI: With changes in rules in the senior division league of the TNCA which allows clubs to play two outstation players to be passed at the AGM on Sunday, club secretaries are working overtime to get their combination right.

Sources have confirmed that India off-spinner Parvez Rasool and King’s XI Punjab opener Manan Vohra have been signed up and are likely to play for one of the two teams owned by Chemplast (Jolly Rovers, Alwarpet).

It will be an opportunity for Jammu & Kashmir’s Rasool to bowl alongside leggie Piyush Chawla. For Vohra, it will be a platform to display his wares in the absence of opener M Vijay, who will be in England on India duty.

Rajasthan’s Robin Bist and Karun Nair, who did well for Karnataka in Ranji Trophy last season, are also on the radar of the Chemplast group.

Youngstars, who have made a solid impact despite playing without big names, have roped in Ganesh Satish of Karnataka and youngster MS Bharath. “Satish fits our bill. He scored a ton against Tamil Nadu in the Ranji final a few seasons back. Bharath is our new recruit. He has played in the league before, so technically he is not an outstation player,” said R Rangarajan, CFO of Kalpathi Investments that owns Youngstars. India Cements have three teams in the league. Former state captain S Suresh, in-charge of one of the teams, said they may not go for any outstation player.  They will miss R Ashwin, who is in the India squad, but have the services of S Badrinath, Dinesh Karthik and L Balaji.
