The Indian Cricket Association has come under fire over its decision to allow players to have more than one house in their private home, as it has reportedly given a list of properties to players who are on a scholarship to study in the US.
A number of players are believed to be staying at one home, including Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh, Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma.
India’s board has been accused of taking advantage of its members and its fans, with some calling it a cover-up for the real purpose of trying to maintain a monopoly on Indian cricket.
The decision to give away the houses to players comes just weeks after a report by the BCCI found that a number of the Indian players were staying in hotels and hotels at night.
It also comes at a time when India’s Test cricket squad is struggling with a host of problems, with a number missing from the team.
A large number of them have been linked to the Kolkata Knight Riders team, who were fined over the weekend for a brawl.
The Indian players’ association is currently working to find solutions to the issues that have been raised by the players’ union.
