Dinesh Karthik responds with unconditional apology after violating BCCI clause

Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik has tendered an “Unconditional Apology” after he violated a BCCI central clause when he watched the 2019 Caribbean Premier League opener between the Trinbago Knight Riders and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots from the Trinbago dressing room.

Karthik is the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders franchise, which is also owned by Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, but wearing a Trinbago Jersey and being viewed in their dressing room caused a violation of BCCI clause and, hence, the Board reverted back with a show cause notice.

According to PTI reports, Karthik submitted a four point submission in which he mentioned that he travelled to Port of Spain on newly appointed coach Brendon McCullum’s request and also wore the Jersey on his request.

“I wish to tender unconditional apology for not seeking permission from BCCI prior to embarking on this visit,” Karthik wrote in his apology letter.

“I wish to reiterate that I have neither participated in any TKR related activities nor played any role whatsoever for TKR,” he added.

The 34-year-old has also mentioned that he would not be seen seated inside their dressing room anymore for the remaining matches, until his departure from Trinidad. The CoA is also expected to bring an end to the matter as Karthik has tendered an unconditional apology.
