In recent developments in Karnataka cricket, two prominent players, Karun Nair and Shreyas Gopal, have received No Objection Certificates (NOC) from the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) to play for other teams in the upcoming domestic cricket season.

Karun Nair, a former captain of Karnataka, has scored multiple fifties and a highest score of 328 in first-class cricket for the state. He was considered for a place in the national team and made his Test debut against England. Notably, he became the second Indian to score a Test triple century. After not finding a place in the Karnataka team in recent times, Nair decided to leave the state team. The rise of young middle-order batsmen like Nikin Jose and Vishal Onat further made it challenging for Nair to secure a consistent spot.

Shreyas Gopal, another promising player, has moved to Kerala to strengthen his spin bowling skills. He made his debut in 2013-14 and played a crucial role as an all-rounder for Karnataka across different formats. However, his playing time has been limited recently, particularly in white-ball formats.

Nikin Jose and Vishal Onat, the young middle-order batsmen from Karnataka, have seen their careers flourish in Nair’s absence. Nikin Jose had an impressive 2022-23 Ranji Trophy season, earning him a spot in the India A squad for the Emerging Asia Cup. Vishal Onat’s potential has also been recognized by the Karnataka selectors.

Additionally, two more Karnataka players, KV Siddharth and Rohan Kadam, are set to join the Goa squad. This shift suggests that these players are seeking better opportunities and more playing time in other teams to further develop their skills and contribute to their respective teams’ success.

These moves highlight the competitive nature of domestic cricket in India, where players may opt to move to different teams to find more opportunities and enhance their cricketing careers.
