India’s veteran wicket-keeper batsman and Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Dinesh Karthik has been issued a notice by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for being present in the Trinbago Knight Riders dressing room. Karthik was with coach Brendon McCullum - also the new coach of the former IPL champions KKR.
Reports suggest Karthik was issued the notice, signed by BCCI chief executive officer Rahul Johri and has been given a week to respond. It is understood the three-person Committee of Administrators (CoA) will decide on the matter once Karthik formally submits his response.
It depends how the CoA will view the whole matter as it is very clear about no active Indian cricketer being involved in any capacity with a foreign T20 league. Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan co-owns the TKR alongside the KKR franchise.
