The match between the Royals Challengers Bangalore and the Mumbai Indians went ahead but apparently not every one was pleased about the decision and reportedly the FICA and PCA are taking objection.
In light of the objections, it appeared Lalit Modi and the IPL governing council were forced to shift the IPL 3 semi finals from Bangalore to Navi Mumbai to appease to the foreign players bodies.
New Zealand authorities and authorities within the FICA are appalled after it was revealed that the match went on on Saturday despite the bomb blasts based on a player consensus in the dressing room.
While reports named England’s Kevin Pietersen and South Africa’s Jacques Kallis as amongst the players who were forced to play, there were reports in New Zealand that suggested that Ross Taylor, also playing for the RCB, felt lucky that there were no casualties outside the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The Professional Cricketers Association and the FICA are outraged because the agreed protocol in the event of such a scenario was to act following further security reports. In that light, the reports that the voting in the dressing room with the Indian cricketers willing to play outnumbering the foreign players have caused a great deal of consternation.
