No move to suspend India or South Africa: ICC
SA players not fully motivated, says Pollock
New Delhi: Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee on Saturday ruled out government intervention in the issue involving the Indian team in South Africa where match referee Mike Denness' action against six players has created a raging controversy."The BCCI is handling it and the government will not interfere in it," he said when asked whether government proposed to take any steps in the matter. The decision by Denness had led to an uproar among Indian cricket fans as also in Parliament with members demanding immediate recall of the team from its tour of South Africa.
