Indians ban 30 English players following Test defeat
The Board of Control for Cricket in India has reacted angrily to the country’s 2-1 loss in the recent Test series against England by banning a group of county cricketers from practising in India.
Around thirty players from Yorkshire, Durham, Kent, Hampshire, Glamorgan, Gloucestershire and Nottinghamshire were due to fly to India in the coming weeks to further their cricketing educations by practising on the spinning pitches of India on trips organised by Sachin Bajaj, founder of the Global Cricket School.
But the BCCI has instructed all ground authorities in Pune, where the GCS is based, that no foreign players must use their facilities without official permission. And in this case that permission has not been granted.
The BCCI is thought to be particularly annoyed that Joe Root, who made such a stunning Test debut in the final Test in Nagpur, had already had such vast experience of Indian conditions before that debut.
BCCI is run by the biggest tools in the world.
