New Delhi: The Committee of Administrators could summon Indian women’s team skipper Harmanpreet Singh and Mithali Raj following the senior most player’s controversial omission for the World T20 semi-final against England. India’s campaign in the ICC tournament ended with a humiliating loss in the last-four stage.
According to a top BCCI official, Mithali might put across her view point in writing to GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim, who is also in charge of women’s cricket. “It is understood that a meeting will be held soon here and CoA is likely to speak separately to Harmanpreet, Mithali, Ramesh (coach Ramesh Powar), manager Trupti Bhattacharya and tour selector Sudha Shah to understand what led to Mithali’s omission,” a senior BCCI official said on conditions of anonymity.
CoA chief Vinod Rai was unhappy that players’ agents are making unsavoury comments about team selection. “The comments made by people who appear to be associated with the Indian women’s team have been viewed with concern. Such statements made in the media are totally uncalled for,” Rai said on Sunday.
