New Delhi: Former Committee of Administrators member Ramachandra Guha feels Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan are being subjected to “public humiliation” by the manner in which their appointment as consultants has been put on hold.

“The shameful treatment of Anil Kumble has now been compounded by the cavalier treatment of Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid,” Guha tweeted.

“Kumble, Dravid and Zaheer were true greats of the game who gave it all on the field. They did not deserve this public humiliation,” he added.Lucknow Divisional Commissioner has been asked to submit its inquiry report within three days.

The Committee of Administrators, CoA yesterday said, the Indian cricket team’s support staff will be recruited after consultation with head coach Ravi Shastri by 22nd of July, effectively putting on hold Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid’s appointments.

In a meeting attended by CoA members Vinod Rai, Diana Edulji and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri, the CoA approved the appointment of Shastri. However, the committee did not implicitly specify whether Dravid and Khan were on board as consultants for specific overseas tours, as had been claimed by the BCCI.
