“The BCCI has accepted Dinesh Karthik’s apology and the matter is now a closed chapter,” a Board official told PTI.
According to the contract clause, Dinesh Karthik, who has featured in 26 Test and 94 ODIs for the men in blue, should have taken BCCI’s consent before attending the game. His contract bars him from being part of any private league.
Dinesh Karthik is the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders but being seen in a Trinbago kit, whlie watching the game from the dressing room, caused the BCCI to put out notice, querying why his contract shouldn’t be annuled.
The 34 year old in his defence, stated that he had gone to port of Spain on KKR coach Brendon McCullum’s request and watched the match sporting the TKR kit on his insistance.
