Now, Gujarat Titans Chief Operating Officer Arvinder Singh opened up and said that the other franchise had approached Shami, the team’s best fast bowler, for a swap, saying that teams do not approach the players directly for a swap should contact.
However, he did not disclose the name of the franchise that contacted Shami about a trade. Yes, but he definitely advised teams to follow the BCCI procedure instead of contacting anyone directly. Responding to a question on Mohammed Shami in News 18, Gujarat’s chief operating officer said, “I think it is wrong for a franchise to have direct contact with the player or the coaching staff.” Teams should follow the BCCI procedure .”
