In a letter to the club secretaries and institutions, Vijayanand said: It is instructed to all the club members/institutions of the three-day league matches and two-day league matches to be stopped with immediate effect until further notice. However, the ongoing one-day league matches will be continued from Monday to Friday.

The letter has triggered a serious debate and many of the club secretaries have resented the move to stop the league matches. “How can they stop the league matches? It was going on smoothly and this decision is a big let setback to the players.’’

However, Vijayanand defended this decision by saying that they will conduct under-19 trial matches. “We have stopped the three-day and two-day league for eight or nine days. “As the all India under-19 tournament will be held next month, we have to conduct the trial matches to select the Hyderabad team,’’ he said.

But a club secretary said on any given day they can hold three or four under-19 matches and it would not come in way with the league matches. “It can be held simultaneously as it had been done in the past. Strange are the ways of the association.’’.
