Team Indian player and Kolkata Knight Riders captain, Dinesh Karthik are in serious trouble as he was spotted in the Caribbean league in SRK owned Trinbago Knight Riders' dressing room. The BCCI has issued a show-cause notice to Dinesh Karthik after he was spotted in the dressing room of Shah Rukh Khan-owned Trinbago Knight Riders during their opening CPL match.
A BCCI official said that BCCI CEO Rahul Johri has asked Karthik to explain why his central contract shouldn't be annulled. Karthik reportedly didn't seek prior permission from the BCCI. Karthik, in fact, was sitting alongside Brendon McCullum while wearing the Trinbago jersey.
“As a centrally contracted cricketer, Dinesh Karthik had no business being seen in a franchise league which is not IPL. His central contract prevents him from being associated with any private league as it has been the BCCI clause for all active first-class cricketers,” the senior official added.
