Indian bowler Chetan Sakariya is on the list of suspicious bowling action. However, reports claim it was an error by BCCI.


Chetan Sakariya’s inclusion in the questionable bowling action list was a mistake by BCCI. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning to correct the blunder. The BCCI first provided a list of seven players, including the left-arm pacer. Cricbuzz on Friday broke the news regarding Chetan Sakariya. On Saturday, Cricbuzz stated that the following publishing of the story, officials from the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) contacted the BCCI. Moreover, as per the developments, Sakariya’s name was accidently present on the list suspect list. His name was on the list instead of a player from south zone, Chetan, who shares a similar name. Jaydev Shah, the President of SCA told Cricbuzz on Saturday (December 16) that,

“It was a sort of miscommunication and error, and Chetan has never been called, and he is not on that list. I understand that the name of a Karnataka bowler should have been there, and the IPL is addressing the issue. The franchises are also being duly informed.”

The Delhi Capitals (DC) just made Chetan Sakariya available for the IPL auction by releasing him. Sakariya hasn’t participated in any domestic events this season since the last IPL. He didn’t mark his presence in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Moreover, a source further stated that Sakariya, who is now suffering due to stress fracture in his back, will soon be back in action. In addition, Chetan Sakariya registered for the next IPL auction at a base price of INR 50 lakh after being released by DC. Only five games did he play in the previous season of the IPL being in the DC squad.
