Anil Kumble, India’s Test captain, has been warned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for revealing what transpired in a selection meeting.
Kumble told Mumbai Mirror that he insisted on a second wicketkeeper (for the Sri Lanka Test series) because there was a view among some of the selectors that the Indian team could do with one specialist.
BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah said that while the captain of the team can address press conferences, he was not supposed to reveal details of selection matters. “The captain cannot tell the media what has taken place at selection committee meetings and on selection policies. And that’s the reason a letter has been sent to him by the BCCI,” Shah said.
