The bosses in BCCI verbally warned the Indian players, refraining them from posting any confidential matter publicly because this breaches the player contracts conditions.

What’s the issue all about ?

From Aug 23 to Aug 29, the Indian Cricket Team is undergoing skill-enhancement camp in Alur, Karnataka. On day 1 of the camp, the players undergo yo-yo fitness test. After passing the test with a score of 17.2, the star batter and former Indian captain took to Instagram to share his story making his score public.

Virat Kohli captioned the story,

The happiness of finishing the yo-yo test, between the dreaded cones, 17.2 done

This reportedly conflicted the contract terms between players and BCCI because posting confidentially matters like yo-yo test score publicly is not allowed under the contract. The BCCI conveyed the message via Indian Team management to its players, stating they should avoid putting their fitness scores in public domain.

BCCI official quoted on Indian Express,

“Players have been informed verbally to avoid posting any confidential matter on social media platforms. They can post pictures while training but posting a score leads to breach of contract clause,”
