Dinesh Karthik was seen in Trinbago Knight Riders dressing room and attending their opening CPL match in Port of Spain. A senior BCCI official told PTI, “Yes, Dinesh Karthik has been issued a show-cause notice by the BCCI. We have received photographs where Karthik is seen in the dressing room of Trinbago Knight Riders. BCCI CEO Rahul Johri has issued a show-cause notice asking him to explain why his central contract shouldn’t be annulled”. The Trinbago Knight Riders are owned by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan who also co-owns the Kolkata Knight Riders team. It is learned that the captain of KKR didn’t seek any permission from the BCCI to attend the event in the West Indies. “As a centrally contracted cricketer, Dinesh Karthik had no business being seen in a franchise league which is not IPL. His central contract prevents him from being associated with any private league as it has been the BCCI clause for all active first-class cricketers,” the senior official said. Karthik remained unavailable for any comment. While it isn’t clear if it was a normal visit to the dressing room or there was some planning going on for the next season of the IPL, Karthik’s fate depends on how the Committee of Administrators (CoA) look at the whole matter.
