Tendulkar, Yuvraj given seven days to reply to show-cause

April 10, 2007 15:48 IST

Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh, slapped with notices for talking to the media, have been asked to explain within seven days their conduct by the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

"The notices seeking an explanation were sent yesterday and they have been asked to respond within seven days," a board source said on Tuesday.

The two players were pulled up by the board's Working Committee for commenting on former coach Greg Chappell as this was in violation of the board's Code of Conduct for its cricketers.

The show-cause notice has been issued under Rule 38 of the Memorandum and the Rules and Regulations of the BCCI.  Tendulkar was recently quoted as saying that he was deeply hurt by Chappell's questioning of the senior players' attitude.

He took full responsibility for the poor show in World Cup but said he was more hurt by the coach's allegations.

Tendulkar pointed out that in his more than 16-year-long career so far, no coach had questioned his attitude.

Yuvraj, on the other hand, incurred BCCI's wrath after saying that the team was backing Tendulkar on this issue.
