Mithali Raj Accuses CoA And Coach: Excerpts From The Letter

Nov 27, 2018 10:27 PM IST India India

Breaking her silence on being dropped from the playing XI for the World T20 semi-final against England, Mithali Raj has lashed out at Committee of Administrators' (CoA) member Diana Edulji and coach Ramesh Powar in a scathing letter to BCCI CEO Rahul Johri and Cricket Operations General Manager Saba Karim. While expressing her dismay at the decision, Mithali alleges in the letter that "few people in power are out to destroy me".
Mithali, who had scored a couple of half-centuries in the tournament, has directed her ire in particular against Edulji, whom she accused of “using her position against me.” Edulji, a former Indian women’s captain, had said on Monday that “too much” was being read into the decision to leave Mithali out for the game.
“The management made the decision of not changing a winning combination and that backfired,” Edulji was quoted as saying by PTI. “If India had won the game, I am sure nobody would have questioned their decision. We can't be questioning the team eleven.”
Former India captain Sourav Ganguly in Mithali's support said that he too was dropped after captaining India
