My coming to Trinidad was at the invitation of the newly appointed head coach of Kolkata Knight Riders Mr McCullum, who also happens to be the head coach of TKR. He felt that it will be useful for me as captain of KKR, to come for some discussions with him in regard to KKR.”
“I wish to tender my unconditional apology for not seeking permission from BCCI to embarking on this visit. I sincerely request this oversight be excused,” he emailed.
Karthik is in West Indies from September 1 to 9, a period in which TKR was going to play three home games. But after being issued a notice by the board, he didn’t went to the TKR dressing room further,
