Calcutta: Pacer Praveen Kumar has been suspended from participating in the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy matches after being issued a show cause notice by the BCCI following his unruly behaviour in a Corporate Trophy game recently.
“Praveen Kumar has been issued a show cause notice by the Board. He has been suspended from participating in the forthcoming inter-state Vijay Hazare Trophy matches,” the BCCI said in a release.
Praveen, who was named in Uttar Pradesh’s 15-member squad for the Vijay Hazare Trophy, has now been left out of the squad.
The bowler was issued a letter by the BCCI Saturday, asking him to explain his stand on the incident in the Corporate Trophy match held in Raipur last week, where he was playing for ONGC.
The match referee described Praveen as “mentally unfit”.
