Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has written to the International Cricket Council asking them not to appoint umpire Darrell Hair for the forthcoming ICC Champions Trophy.

''We have written a letter to the ICC asking them not to appoint Hair for the Champions Trophy,'' BCCI secretary Niranajan Shah told reporters here today.

Hair hit the headlines after his role in the forfeited Test match between England and Pakistan at The Oval.

''The media focus will be on him, plus there are also chances of crowd trouble during the matches in which he is there,'' Shah added.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka are also not keen on umpire Hair for the event.
