Former Indian cricketer Munaf Patel has attracted controversy after he allegedly sent death threats to Vadodara-based Cricket Hitrakshak Samiti (CHS) chief Devendra Surti. But Munaf has denied all such claims and said he is being unnecessary dragged.

The story

According to the version of Devendra Surti, Munaf is “threatening to kill him” because of the anti-corruption voice he has been raising. “I have been raising my voice against corruption in the cricket association and this is why I am being threatened. I want the police to know that if something happens to me and my family, then Munaf Patel should be held responsible,” Surti was quoted as saying by Indian Express. Munaf is currently working as the mentor for the senior teams under Baroda Cricket Association and CHS is taking up fights against BCA.

“My name has been dragged into the matter for no reason. I have only played cricket and would continue to do that throughout my life. He has issues with the selections, but I am a team mentor and have no role to play in selections. My name has been unnecessarily dragged into the matter and the allegations are completely baseless,” Munaf responded on the allegations.

No complaint yet

Munaf retired from the sport in November last year after playing 13 Tests, 70 ODIs and three T20Is for India since his debut at Mohali in 2006. He was also part of India’s 2011 World Cup-winning team and finished the tournament as the third-highest wicket-taker for India just behind Zaheer Khan and Yuvraj Singh.

While Police inspector R M Chauhan at Navpura Police station was asked about the same he said that they did not receive any official complaint or FIR although Surti had sent the application. “We have received the application from Surti. However, he has not filed any police complaint and therefore no FIR has been lodged in the matter.”
