BCCI to Question Karun Nair, Murali Vijay for Breaching Central Contract

The Board of Control for Cricket in India will question Karun Nair and Murali Vijay for breaching the central contract. As per the rules of the central contract, no player can speak about a particular tour for 30 days. However, Murali Vijay had recently said he had no communication with the selection committee regarding his omission for the Windies series.

Karun Nair also finds himself on the same page of the story. The Karnataka batsman had said that he didn’t have any chat with the selectors and team management that he didn’t get any chance on England tour. Furthermore, Nair didn’t make the cut for the Windies series. Thus, he was dropped despite playing no matches.

Karun Nair and Murali Vijay can get into trouble.

In fact, Nair was part of the Indian squad for the England tour from the beginning. However, he didn’t receive his chance in the fifth Test match as Hanuma Vihari was included, who had received his maiden call-up for the final two Test matches.

On the other hand, Murali Vijay didn’t have the best of England tour as he scored only 26 runs in the first two Test matches. Subsequently, he was dropped from the third Test match and didn’t find his place in the squad for the final two matches.

However, he was able to get his Midas touch back in the County Championship where he scored three fifties and one hundred. Surprisingly, Vijay was once again overlooked by the selectors.

“Vijay and Karun didn’t exactly do the right thing by speaking on selection policy. That is a breach of central contract. As per the central contract, no player can speak about a just-concluded tour for 30 days. There is a COA meeting in Hyderabad on October 11 and this issue will be raised there,” a senior BCCI said as quoted by PTI.

Meanwhile, Committee of Administrators chief Vinod Rai rubbished the statements of both the players. He said that there was communication between players and selection committee.

“This is all rubbish. There has been no case of lack of communication from the selection committee. Our selection committee works independently. As far as players’ (Vijay and Karun) statements are concerned, we have left it on selectors to decide about them,” CoA chief Vinod Rai told media-persons on the sidelines of the CoA meeting on Saturday.

In fact, the Chief selector MSK Prasad had also rubbished the claims of Murali Vijay.
