Wankede curator lays complaint against Shastri
The curator of the Wankede Stadium in Mumbai, Sudhir Naik, has laid a complaint to the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) because he and his assistant were verbally abused by India team director Ravi Shastri and bowling coach Bharat Arun.
The alleged incident happened on Sunday after India were trounced by 214 runs against South Africa in the fifth and deciding ODI.
The home side conceded a record total of 438 for four in their 50 overs while they could only reply with 224 all out as they lost the series three-two.
MCA joint secretary Unmesh Khanvilkar said: "We have received a complaint from Naik alleging two members of India support staff getting involved in a heated exchange with the MCA curators after the Wankhede ODI."
The BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur said: "We need to look at the details first, we can't straightaway go to the action.
"As for the BCCI taking action against anyone, whether it is a player or a member of the support staff, if you remember the incident in Australia and in the last six months we have made it very clear that the rules and regulations are equal for everyone.
"The same yardstick will follow in every case."
