Sarfaraz Khan expelled from BCCI academy
Thursday 16 August 2012

Under-16 cricketer Sarfaraz Khan has been expelled from the BCCI's batting academy at Mumbai's Bandra-Kurla Complex on grounds of indiscipline.

With three days left for the camp to end, there had been growing complaints about Sarfaraz's indiscipline following which he was asked to leave.

Cricketers from nine associations selected by the BCCI train at the state-of-the-art indoor academy of the Mumbai Cricket Association where nine tracks are on offer.

BCCI executive committee member MP Pandove, who is in-charge of all academies, was in Mumbai on Tuesday and personally recommended Sarfaraz's removal.

However, MCA officials could not confirm the development. Sarfaraz recently returned after an academic stint in England after he was picked as one of the three "Coca Cola Cricket Stars" after its annual All India tournament for schools held last year.
