In a press conference held late today, the BCCI have expressed their unhappiness at the decisions of ICC match referee Mike Denness. Denness suspended Sehwag for one Test; and handed out suspended bans and fines for five others, including Sachin Tendulkar.
The BCCI issued a statement signed by board president Jagmohan Dalmiya, calling for the removal of Denness as match referee for the remaining Test, and indicating that several players wished to pull out of the series. The BCCI further indicated that they would accept a South African referee if no-one from the ICC panel was available. The board also stated that it intends to take up the issue further with the ICC.
