BCCI warns Sehwag for speaking out on burnout, Ganguly

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, May 9 (UNI) Virender Sehwag earned the BCCI's wrath after his comments on burnout and Sourav Ganguly and the Board has verbally warned the Team India Vice Captain not to air his views on policy and selection matters.

Sehwag, in a recent interview, had said that the team missed former skipper Sourav Ganguly at times and also revealed that the senior players had met the BCCI top brass to draw their attention to too much of cricket and the resulting players' burnout.

''Yes, Sehwag has been given a verbal warning not to go public with his views on these two subjects. Regarding Ganguly, this is a selection committee decision and no player should air his view about that,'' BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah told UNI over phone.

''Regarding players' burnout, any player can sit out whenever he feels so. We have to follow the ICC norms and play the stipulated number of matches. We can't change the itinerary just because a player feels there is too much of cricket. This is a purely policy matter of the board and no player is allowed to debate on that,'' he added.

Mr Shah said there were regular meetings between the players and the board and cricketers should raise their issues there, instead of going to the media.

''You have a proper platform to address these issues and going the media is not what is expected from them,'' he said.

In the past, Harbhajan Singh was warned for siding with Ganguly and blaming coach Greg Chappell for creating an insecurity among the players.
