Now sources told a leading news channel, that the Board of Cricket Control in India is contemplating serious action against the team for risking the players availability for India's tour of the West Indies.
Gautam Gambhir claimed that the KKR management did not intimate him about the seriousness of his shoulder injury even as he played throughout the fourth edition of the IPL. If Gauti's claims are true then Shahrukh Khan-owned KKR has some serious accounting for.
In a letter to the BCCI, Kolkata Knight Riders" physiotherapist Andrew Leipus said that Gambhir had complained of a sore shoulder right at the start of IPL-IV. Strangely, in spite of the injury, Gambhir has played all 15 matches so far in this season of the IPL.
According to Leipus, Gambhir has to avoid both batting and throwing for a period of four to six weeks to allow his shoulder to heal. This surely rules him out of India"s tour of West Indies next month where he was to captain the side.
Despite a serious shoulder injury, Gautam Gambhir took to the field for KKR for their knockout match yesterday at the Wankhede Stadium. Clearly in pain, Gauti got out early. While fielding, Gambhir writhed in pain as he tried to throw with his injured shoulder.
