The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) is set to meet in the capital on Friday, but it is likely to ignore the reports of rifts between the Indian cricketers. Ever since India’s exit from the World Cup after the semi-final loss against New Zealand, there have been constant reports of rifts within the team. From talks of issues between the senior players to rumours that some senior members of the team were not happy with one cricketer breaking the ‘family clause’, there have been stories making headlines every other day.
A CoA member said that while the committee is meeting on Friday, they are unlikely to discuss the issue of rifts in the team unless the same is brought to them by the players themselves. The CoA cannot be reacting to reports in the media. If the players have any issue, they can/should bring it up with us. As far as the committee is concerned, there is no rift till the players talk of it with us, the member said.
