Board of Control for Cricket in India[BCCI] has warned, Ace batsmen Virat kohli for crossing the rules to chit-chat with Anushka Sharma during a match against Delhi Daredevils. It has drawn a warning from the IPL’s Anti-Corruption unit too.
BCCI has hired the ICC’s wing of Anti-Corruption and Security unit in a bid to safeguard and watch the players from indulging in any betting or illegal things. The Unit monitors the players both in their Hotels and during the match. As a part of this, it laid rules clearly stating that the players should not meet anyone during the match hours in the stadium including their wives and girl friends.
“We shouldn’t blow the thing out of proportion but I have spoken to him and told him he shouldn’t speak to anyone when technically the match is still on. At the Chinnaswamy [stadium], there is only a partition between the VIP enclosure and the players area and hence he may have spoken. If the ACSU officials inform us we will definitely warn him but I have already informally spoken to him and told him not to do this,” said BCCI official and former IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla, the India Today reports.
The Officials of the Anti-Corruption Unit opined that , it is more likely that Virat knew the rule being a captain and that it is not justifiable, as a Captain must be responsible and be a model for his team to follow.
