Jammu and Kashmir cricket mentor Irfan Pathan stated that the BCCI has promised to help the team after they were forced to pull out of a domestic tournament due to the communication clampdown in the state. 

"Hopefully, this won't have an impact in the upcoming season. From what I have spoken to BCCI, they are ready to help in any way. They will help in taking any decision. It is quite possible things may return to normalcy and we may not need to move anywhere else," Irfan said.

The Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association pulled out of the upcoming Vizzy Trophy after the players could not be contacted due to the curfew that has been set in place in the state after the Indian government revoked Article 370. 

"We (the Jammu and Kashmir team) are not going for the Vizzy Trophy. The ground reality is that we tried to send the boys to play the tournament as preparation is necessary (but could not make it)," Pathan told reporters.

"We did a camp from June 14 and we trained for a month. I had taken a trainer who was with the Indian team for the camp. Our coach has worked a lot and fitness levels had improved.

"(But) when the matches started, we had to stop (training) as curfew was imposed and it was better to send back all the kids (players to their respective homes)," he said.

The Vizzy Trophy is a preparation tournament, held before the Indian domestic season gets underway.
