NEW DELHI, Sept 8: India discard Dinesh Karthik has tendered an �unconditional apology� for violating BCCI�s central clause by watching a Caribbean Premier League game from the Shah Rukh Khan co-owned Trinbago Knight Riders� dressing room.
Karthik is the captain of IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders but being seen in a Trinbago jersey while watching the match from the dressing room forced the BCCI to issue a show cause notice, asking why his central contract should not be cancelled.
Karthik, in his reply, a copy of which is in possession of PTI, has informed through a four-point submission that he went to Port of Spain on coach Brendon McCullum�s request and watched the match wearing the TKR jersey on the New Zealander�s request.
�I wish to tender unconditional apology for not seeking permission from BCCI prior to embarking on this visit,� Karthik wrote in his apology letter.
�I wish to reiterate that I have neither participated in any TKR related activities nor played any role whatsoever for TKR,� he added. � PTI
