Dinesh Karthik responds to BCCI notice on his appearance in CPL 2019

Indian wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik issued an unconditional apology to BCCI for appearing in Caribbean Premier League 2019.

The KKR skipper was spotted in Trinbago Knight Riders‘ dressing room during the opening match of the season. Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan owns both the franchises, KKR and TKR.

As per BCCI’s central contract, no active first-class cricketers are allowed to associate themselves with any franchise league except IPL.

Karthik responded to BCCI’s notice via an email on September 6. “At the outset, I wish to state that I have not participated in Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) in any capacity,” wrote Karthik.

I wish to tender my unconditional apology for not seeking permission from BCCI to embarking on this visit. I sincerely request this oversight be excused,” he added.

Karthik clarified that he was present at the event on the invitation of Kolkata Knight Riders’ head coach Brendon McCullum.
