BCCI accepts Karthik’s apology for CPL appearance


    The BCCI has accepted Dinesh Karthik’s ‘unconditional apology’ for watching a CPL match from TKR’s dressing room.

    A board official said that the BCCI has accepted Karthik’s apology and the matter is now a ‘closed chapter’

    The central contract states that Karthik should have taken permission from the BCCI before attending the match.

    His contract bars him from being associated with any private league.

    Karthik is the captain of IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders and was seen in a TKR jersey, while watching the match from the dressing room.

    This prompted the BCCI to issue a show cause notice, asking why his central contract should not be cancelled.

    Karthik replied saying he went to Trinidad on KKR’s new head coach Brendon McCullum’s request and watched the match wearing the TKR jersey on the Kiwi’s insistence.
