Mumbai:Maharashtra cricketer Abhijit Kale is relieved' as well as confused' over the decision of the disciplinary committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to ban him till the end of the year for trying to bribehis way into the national team last year.

"What can I say. I am both relieved and confused. I am relieved in the light of media report mentioning, I was facing a two-year ban or even a life ban. To that extent I am relieved," Kale said from his residence in Thane.

"At the same time I am also confused a bit about what exactly my emotions are at the moment. The ban till December 31st means I will be missing the crucial four or five Ranji Trophy league ties," the middle order batsman said.

"The beginning of the season is always a crucial time (to get into form). And this year, Maharashtra will be playing in the Elite division after gaining promotion," he added.
