DURBAN: We have just seen game No 43 of the DLF Indian Premier League 2009 Season in South Africa. We haven't had any controversies, so the media has created some.
There is an issue being made about Brad Hodge. Whether he was sitting in the player's area or the hospitality area, has he violated guidelines? I just want to say something. We have a strict guideline in the DLF-IPL. It's very simple. If you are not in the playing squad, we recommend the players to go and sit in the hospitality suite.
Nevertheless the media has created controversy about it. We have investigated the matter. And as he wasn't in the playing XI, he was sitting with his wife and kids in the hospitality suites, which is where he should have been. He has obeyed the guidelines and so has the team and that's the end to that controversy. That's what we would like more and more teams to do, going forward.
