The controversy between the Cricket Association of Uttarakhand and former cricket Wasim Jaffer continues to grow. CAU has accused Wasim Jaffer of religious discrimination and calling maulvis during training in bio bubble. Wasim Jaffer has clarified the entire matter through a tweet. Jaffer has denied all the allegations of CAU, saying that he never called the clerics during training.
On Tuesday, Wasim Jaffer resigned as the coach of the Uttarakhand team. Wasim Jaffer took over as the coach of the Uttarakhand team after saying goodbye to cricket. It was only after Jaffer’s resignation that the board and the former Indian cricketer began to accuse each other.
The Cricket Association of Uttarakhand alleged that Wasim Jaffer was promoting a Muslim player in the team. The board alleged that Jafar made Iqbal Abdullah the captain of the team in place of Chandila. Along with this, Jafar was also accused of calling clerics during the training camp in Bio Bubble.
Jaffer dismissed all allegations
But Jafar has dismissed all the allegations against him by tweeting. Jaffer said, “I did not call the clerics during the training camp. I had advocated the appointment of Jai Bisht as the captain and not Iqbal.
Wasim Jaffer has also stated the reason for resigning from the post of coach. The former cricketer said, “I resigned because the selectors were choosing players who do not desist from getting a place in the team.” The team used to raise slogans related to the Sikh community, which I advocated to say Go Uttarakhand.
Let us know that Wasim Jaffer has got the support of the former players in this case as well. Former Team India coach Anil Kumble has said that he is completely with Wasim Jaffer and he has done nothing wrong. Manoj Tiwari has also come in support of Wasim Jaffer. Wasim Jafar holds the record for the highest run scorer in Ranji cricket.
