Mohali:Punjab Cricket Association today defended its star batsman Yuvraj Singh following his comments on the Ganguly-Chappell episode, saying it was upto the Cricket Board to "take measures" to prevent players from making such remarks.

Bindra did not clarify if PCA would summon Yuvraj, like it had done in Harbhajan Singh's case, but said "we will definitely ask him about his comments".

"The comments (by players) have become order of the day. Norms are meant to be observed, but the Board has to ensure their strict enforcement," Bindra told a press conference here.

Bindra's comments came a day after BCCI secretary S K Nair took objection to Yuvraj's remark, saying he had breached the Board's gag order.

Yuvraj, in an interview to PTI on Thursday, had said the row between skipper Ganguly and coach Chappell was disappointing but the team should move ahead.

PCA had earlier summoned off-spinner Harbhajan Singh following his outburst against Chappell and advised him to have a word with the Association rather than rushing to themedia.
