Ishant Sharma warned for donning national jersey during Ranji Trophy
The Indian pacer, Ishant Sharma, has been issued an official warning by BCCI during the Ranji Trophy game between Delhi and Karnataka as the tall and lanky bowler was spotted bowling wearing an Indian jersey during the game. According to the new rules implemented by BCCI in the year 2014, no player is allowed to wear a national jersey or use any material having a BCCI logo on it. According to the rule, if any international level player does not have a substitute helmet or jersey to play the domestic game, then he has to tape that part of the equipment in order to use it. Breaching this rule will give an invitation to fine.
This rule came into effect from the Ranji Trophy season 2014/15.
Ishant Sharma has been seen bowling wearing an Indian jersey and it soon came to the notice of match referee Pranab Roy who then sent an unofficial message to Ishant Sharma not to repeat the mistake again. Ishant then received an official warning later.
A few months back, the Indian pacer Mohammed Shami also invited fine when the pacer was spotted batting with a BCCI logo on his helmet during the historical pink ball clash between Mohun Bagan and Bhowanipore Club.
BCCI is taking this matter seriously and they take an immediate action on those violating this rule.
It wasn’t a great game for Ishant as he was not fully fit and seemed to be struggling during the game. He could just scalp one wicket in the game. The comeback man Gautam Gambhir also disappointed as the skipper could just score 4 runs in two innings whereas Karun Nair, the rival of Gautam Gambhir for that one opening slot scored a half-century, in addition to that he led the team from the front and crushed the experienced Delhi squad with 2 and a half days.
With squad for the rest of two ODI’s and two Test matches to be announced tomorrow, we may see Karun Nair a getting place in the squad, Gambhir selection is not sure as of now.
