The Ranji trophy season witnessed another controversy when national selector Devang Gandhi was removed from the Bengal dressing room after Manoj Tiwary made a complaint about his presence to the anti-corruption according to a report in The Indian Express.
“As per the anti-corruption protocol, only players and support staff are allowed inside the dressing-room. The selector had no business coming there. So obviously I took exception to his presence there and took the matter to the anti-corruption official. Accordingly, the anti-corruption official asked the selector to go,” Tiwary told reporters.
“I was sitting outside the boundary, which as a selector I’m entitled to. I am having a back problem and Lal ji (Bengal coach Arun Lal) asked me to come to the dressing-room and consult the physio. I took permission from the anti-corruption official before entering the dressing-room and I took the physio to the CAB medical room,” the national selector told.
