Excuses have been given an entirely new dimension by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). If allowing girlfriend Anushka Sharma to stay with Virat Kohli in England for the first two Tests wasn’t enough to raise eyebrows, the pretext BCCI used to convince the team management is mind-boggling.BCCI told the management that the duo will get married very soon.Speaking to Mail Today, a BCCI official said that while there was a bit of a dilemma as to how the touring Indian media would react, the Board told the officials travelling with the team that it was just a matter of time before the duo ties the nuptial knot.”The team management was slightly taken aback when the BCCI approved Kohli’s plea of letting Anushka stay with him. But they were told there was no reason to worry as the two were planning to get married. And this isn’t the first time such a thing was happening. A captain’s girlfriend had travelled with the team in the past as well,” he said.In fact, the BCCI also told them that Kohli was smart enough to handle the situation and the media wouldn’t even get to know of Anushka’s presence -a definite error of judgment.”When the management enquired on how to handle the media if they questioned her presence with the vice-captain, they were told that Kohli can handle the media attention and wouldn’t let the cat out of the bag,” he said.On the view that Anushka’s presence had nothing to do with Kohli’s poor form, the official said: “Unlike football, Test cricket is played for eight hours. And when the mind is on picking and dropping friends, the result will be visible on the field itself. Off-field activities definitely play on the mind.”advertisementBut another official said that the sole reason behind the ruckus is the relationship status. “If the duo was married, nobody would have said a word. We all know how Indian culture is. And the lack of form ended up serving as fodder for the media. If he had scored runs, they would have ignored the whole issue,” he said.

My year there was not what I expected. I missed that they had confidence in me, I didn’t play more than two consecutive games as a starter. I don’t ask to play every game, because I’m not a megacrack, I just want continuity. “mI came to doubt myself, my abilities, if I really had a level for the Premier… There were many disappointments.

National titleCollege football fans are likely happy with Michigan’s quick turnaround under Jim Harbaugh – simply because a good Wolverines team makes the sport more interesting.
