The BCCI has shot off a letter to the Delhi & Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) for allowing some of the Vidarbha cricketers to flout the anti corruption norms by speaking to former India captain Mohammed Azharuddin during a Ranji Trophy match against Delhi at Feroz Shah Kotla. The players in question are veteran cricketers Wasim Jaffer and S Badrinath along with chief coach Paras Mhambrey, who were seen speaking to Azharuddin on the sidelines of their Ranji Trophy match against Delhi, where the former India captain had come on invitation of DDCA vice-president Chetan Chauhan. The BCCI has not yet lifted the life ban on Azharuddin, who was found guilty in 2000 for allegedly getting involved in match-fixing. Chauhan admitted that they have indeed received a communication from the BCCI in this regard although he termed it as “some kind of confusion”. “The BCCI has written to us as to how Vidarbha players spoke to Azharuddin in the Players and Match Officials Area (PMOA) area. Now the area which they are including in PMOA is where the selectors (Vinay Lamba and Hari Gidwani) and DDCA officials were sitting. Azhar was sitting right there. Now that is a bit confusing. But if they are saying that players shouldn’t have spoken to Azhar, we should be more careful,” said Chauhan.
