Bangalore, Oct 9 (UNI) Taking exception to the utterings of some of the players ahead of the start of the India-Australia Test series, Match Referee Chris Broad has told the players to avoid making inappropriate public comments or face action.
He said any such comments could result in a code of conduct charge being laid against the individual responsible.
He made his remarks to both captains, coaches and team management during the scheduled pre-series meetings ahead of the first of the four Test matches, which started in Bangalore today.
Meanwhile, ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat has said the whole world has been waiting for this series with great expectations and ''we all want it to be remembered for all the right reasons, because of great cricket.'' ''There has been a long build-up to the series but now it is time for the cricket on the field to do the talking as a demonstration that Test cricket remains the pinnacle of our great game,'' he added.
