Mumbai: The BCCI has found a senior Indian cricket team player guilty in a case of violation of his family rules. The player had requested his wife to stay together for more than 15 days of the permissible period, but the Committee of Administrators (COA) ruled out it. It is learnt that the wife of the player stayed with him for a full seven weeks during the tournament when permission was not obtained from the captain or the coach.
