“Television reports say that Sudhindra is banned for life while Mohnish was suspended for five years. But I have never witnessed any suspicious behaviour from any of them. I found them absolutely normal whenever we interacted,” Ojha told SUNDAY MiD DAY.
At the same time, Ojha doesn’t believe the Madhya Pradesh side will be a weaker unit in the coming season sans these key players. “It’s difficult to fill slots left by senior players, but after few matches, the team will gel as a unit and we would be able to play our natural game,” the wicketkeeper-batsman said.
Ojha stressed that Sudhindra was their strike bowler and vice-captain while Mishra was skipper in the last season. Ojha was confident that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would free the game of this evil.
