Mohun Bagan to sign 5 foreigners!

Just when the Mohun Bagan Cricket officials declared that they were intending on signing foreigners for the ongoing JC Mukherjee Trophy, CAB was quick to reject any such ideas and even Jagmohan Dalmia himself expressed his disapproval.
But only after the Bagan officials pointed out that there are no such rules regarding whether foreigners should play in the J.C. Mukherjee trophy or not, and so CAB had no immediate right to stop them and given the option, Bagan would like to play foreigners in an effort to popularize domestic cricket, and barring them from registering the foreign recruits would force Bagan to take back their name from any of the ongoing tournaments this season, CAB yielded and today has given green signal to Mohun Bagan to register their foreign recruits.

Sources say that Bagan officials are intending on signing 5 foreigners, including Chaminda Vaas and Tillakaratne Dilshan of Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh captain Md. Ashraful and his countryman Ali Mortaza
