Bangalore, Oct 30 (UNI) Rajya Sabha member from Karnataka Rajeev Chandrasekhar today urged the Board of Cricket Control in India to have a look into the dropping of former captain Rahul Dravid.
In a letter to BCCI President Sharad Pawar, he said that a number of questions had arisen from this action of the Selection Committee principally around the fact that whether the decision of dropping Dravid was driven by personal views.
"Dravid is an Indian cricketer, who are all proud of and should be because of the values of professionalism, dedication and performance that he had exemplified in recent years both as an individual member of the team and as captain", he said.
"If there is an attempt by anyone in the cricketing establishment to cause harm to him, on grounds other than professional, then that's clearly unacceptable to me, the people of Karnataka and cricketing fans all over India," he said.
The Chairman of the Indian Selection Committee Dilip Vengsarkar has termed the dropping as a 'rest.' Mr Chandrasekhar, Member of Parliament from Karnataka, has urged the BCCI President to look into the dropping of Dravid and establish correct facts and be treated with the respect that he deserves.
