Sreesanth loses cool over AC, gets BCCI notice
Posted on: 02:10 PM IST Jun 18, 2008 IST
New Delhi: India pacer S Sreesanth is in trouble again. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has sent him a letter on Wednesday asking for an explanation on the alleged altercation he had at the Hotel Grand Ashoka in Bangalore on Sunday.
The BCCI has also sent a letter to the hotel asking for details on the incident.
Sreesanth allegedly had a tiff with the hotel authorities over a noisy air-conditioner in his room.
The AC of Sreesanth's room was reportedly making a lot of noise and the young fast bowler insisted on shifting to another room.
But as there was no vacant room so the hotel management requested him to wait for some time.
Sreesant apparently flew into a rage and threatened to shift to another hotel.
Sreesanth is at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore for a fitness regime after he was ruled out of the Asia Cup with a side strain.
The fiery young pacer has been making headlines for the past few months for being at the center of controversies and not for his cricketing exploits.
During the Indian Premier League, Sreesanth was slapped in Mumbai on April 25 by India teammate Harbhajan Singh after a match between Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians.
Sreesanth was representing Kings XI Punjab while Harbhajan was the acting captain of Mumbai Indians during the match.
Harbhajan, another player who has been in many controversial situations, was banned from the IPL. The Board of Control for Cricket in India also banned the off-spinner from 10 One-Day Internationals.
Sreesanth, too, was warned to mend his ways by the BCCI.
