BCCI not to take up Randiv no-ball issue with SLC

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, Aug 17 (PTI) - With Suraj Randiv and Sri Lanka Cricket apologising for the deliberate no-ball which denied Virender Sehwag a hundred in a tri-series match last night, the BCCI today decided against pursuing the matter any further.

The Board made it clear that it had no intention of lodging a protest with its Sri Lankan counterpart.

"Of course not. We are not thinking of lodging any complaint. These things happen in cricket. What is there to take up? Did New Zealand take up with Australia when the under-arm incident happened," a Board source said.

He was referring to a 1981 incident when Trevor Chappell, on instruction of his brother and Australian captain Greg Chappell, bowled an under-arm delivery to prevent New Zealand batsman Brian McKechnie from hitting a six from the last ball to tie the match.
