BCCI issues notice to 6 players for indiscipline

Express May 18, 2010

SAINT LUCIA: The Indian cricket board issued notices to six players for their involvement in a pub brawl in Saint Lucia.

This happened after India's humiliating exit from Twenty20 World Cup. The show-cause notice was served to Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Rohit Sharma, Piyush Chawla and Ravindra Jadeja by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The tough stand by the board came in the wake of the tour manager's report to BCCI president and his meeting on Sunday with the latter at BCCI headquarters in Mumbai.

The players were given a seven day deadline for clarification.


Prakash Pordar | 14 years ago | Reply Sachin is money greedy. India is poise to lose. But as usual they have the support of media, groundsmen and strong lobby. They will surely prevail. Just like in 2007 when they were ousted they had a series with Bangladesh and they lashed them out of the park. This time around they are having a series with zimbabve, the minnow team. All this was preplanned to booast their team moral. The indian public are soo stupid to see these trends. Wake up and smell the air, india only does well in home series or good with minnow teams. They indirectly bribe the other strong teams like England, australia and south africa by giving them large commerical deals.
santosh khatelsal | 14 years ago | Reply There is a cause and then an effect. The cause of the brawl was loosing the match and being unceremoniously ousted from the series. One of the side effects of this was perhaps the brawl. It would be good if apart from addressing the effect BCCI starts looking at the cause, Dhoni claims that the loosing the match was not a cause indeed but an effect of the late night parties which then becomes a cause. The late night parties was in turn an effect of IPL which is the cause. IPL was also an effect to cater to our deep felt need to sensationalize and glamorize cricket instead of watching plain old vanilla cricket. So where does the chain of cause and effect really end??
