‘Surprised it took so ache for BCCI to suspend Hiken Shah': Kirti Azad

Previous Indian cricketer Kirti Azad on Monday said he was amazed that the BCCI took so long to suspend Mumbai Ranji player Hiken Shah for rupturing its Anti-Corruption Code.

“I think it is only the tip of a chunk of ice. I don’t know why BCCI took so long to suspend him,” Azad told ANI here, including that the, “BCCI is the Board of Cozy Club of India”.

The BCCI said in an announcement that it has suspended Shah with quick impact, including that he was discovered blameworthy of rupturing the Anti-Corruption Code.

It has been uncovered that Shah had drawn closer Rajasthan Royal’s leg-spinner Pravin Tambe for match altering.

Tambe had before purportedly said that that he was drawn nearer by his Ranji colleague, including that he had declined the offer. Tambe likewise said that he had reported the episode to the BCCI’s against defilement unit before the current year’s competition.

Shah, who last played against Uttar Pradesh at Kanpur in December 2014, has been a predictable entertainer for Mumbai.
