Mumbai, Feb 29: Angry K Srikkanth lost his cool on Wednesday when he was repeatedly questioned about the decision to rest Virender Sehwag for the Asia Cup in Bangladesh starting on March 11.
The chairman of selectors announced the squad for the Asia Cup in Mumbai stating that Sehwag and Zaheer Khan had been rested on medical grounds. He was questioned if the decision was in fact based on performance which was denied. "I assure you that no one has been dropped from the side. BCCI received a report from the team physiotherapist saying that Sehwag and Zaheer need proper rest," he said.
On being further questioned by a reporter, Srikkanth lost his temper. "Boss you just Shut up.You dont' talk like that now. Ok that's enough. You keep quiet. Aap aise googly bol-bol ke baat karega toh mai bhi gussa ho jaega (If you talk in circles then even I will get angry)," he said.
"Asking the same question in different ways will not get you a different answer. It is the honest truth. I am not giving any other reason. The players have been rested on injury grounds. That is a promise. I cannot show you the medical reports because it is an internal matter," he added.
