Bedi accused of bias in Jammu and Kashmir
Former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi, appointed as the coach of the Jammu and Kashmir senior state team, came under fire from team captain Samiullah Beigh yesterday who accused him of preferring players from Jammu region over those from Kashmir
“Since he came, the situation has worsened. He has created rifts in the team, he has done a lot of harm to the team,” Beigh alleged.
“Let me tell you frankly with a heavy heart that I respect his stature, but he wants only Jammu players in the side. In the last match, nobody has scored even 10 runs except one guy. There is a guy who has scored 10 successive ducks but I guarantee you he will be there in the side for the next game,” he added.
