Former India wicketkeeper Kiran More has applied for amnesty from the BCCI. More, who had joined the now-defunct Indian Cricket League (ICL) back in 2007 was banned for joining the unsactioned league. He along with Kapil Dev were the only two former Test players who didn't accept the amnesty offer from BCCI back in 2009.

But now More is ready to get back under the aegis of the BCCI, which will enable him for the BCCI's one-time benefit payment. "I have already written to the BCCI that I have severed ties with the ICL and am ready to take the amnesty offer. I wrote the letter one and half month back. I have been assured that the matter is in process and I will be granted amnesty very soon. Since the IPL is on, the procedure is taking some time," said More.
