Chhattisgarh Governor, Anusuiya Uikey to register a complaint

India National Team 5

The Governor of Chhattisgarh, Anusuiya Uikey is not happy as she did not get to witness second India vs New Zealand ODI.

According to her, the BCCI did not give a proper invitation to the Raj Bhavan to come and see the match.

This is why the Raj Bhavan is going to register a complaint with the BCCI and the Government of India.

Meanwhile, other notable people including Chief Minister, Bhupesh Baghel, and MLAs of Chhattisgarh were invited to witness the second ODI.

Other invitees in attendance included Justices and Judges of the Chhattisgarh High Court.

The Governor will register a complaint soon according to sources

Meanwhile, the Raj Bhavan spokesperson has given a statement on the same.

We will register our objection with the Government of India as well as the BCCI for this soon.

The state government, however, has said that they are not at all responsible for not inviting the Raj Bhavan.

Additionally, they have also stated that it is the responsibility of the BCCI to invite the Raj Bhavan.

According to the state government, it should have been the initiative of the BCCI and not them in inviting the Raj Bhavan.

Along with the BCCI, the ICC should also have taken the responsibility of inviting the Raj Bhavan as per the protocols of the national board and the ICC.

The state government only provided the stadium to the organizers and security. This match has put Chhattisgarh on the world map.

On the other hand, the second ODI between India and New Zealand was a pretty one-sided affair with India dominating throughout.

The Kiwis lost the fight in the first innings itself as half of their side was back in the hut for a paltry 15 runs.

Some handy contributions from Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, and Michael Bracewell ensured that the visitors reached a three-figure score.

However, some great bowling by the Indians saw the Black Caps ultimately folding up for 108 runs.

India reached the target in just 21 overs, courtesy of a fifty by skipper Rohit Sharma.
